If You Build It They Will Come
Using books to build community <--- Please click on this link for a lovely story. I LOVE this idea! I would build one in my yard if my 2 dogs and the neighbor's 5 dogs wouldn't bark like crazy. I never buy books since I use the public library constantly but if I had a "little free library" a bag of paperback books to stock it would be cheap when they have the Friends of the Library book sale. My sister used to live in a little bitty town that did not have a library. I can just imagine a little place like that having "little libraries" here and there up and down the streets. What I would especially love is if neigborhoods had them with children's books. I used to go out to schools to do library programs and I would always ask "who has a library card" or "how often do your parents take you to the library" and it was truly heartbreaking to see how few children get to have the library experience.
