Little Free Library…

Little Free Library Lawerence Kansas. white with red interior
I first saw these on Facebook in the form of utilizing unused phone booths in England. Not long after that, probably because they had now been brought to my attention, I came across another photo of a Little Library in Lawerence, Kansas. –>

This little gem of an idea will not let me go.
I love the whole concept of it… not to mention the cuteness factor. How could anyone not want to read a book from a little house? Okay, my grandkiddos who refused to read this summer ~Weasy, a straight A student, has read 10% of a book in the last three months.~ may be able to resist. However, I know I could never pass by one without a peek inside.
Now I find out there is a Little Free Library Organization complete with website. Click on the link for a trip over there and you will find the mission statement ~ they have goals and they are noble and good. ~ a gallery section filled with creative little buildings plus a map link to find Little Free Libraries around the world. This is where I found we have a need in my area.
If I had been aware of this idea while teaching I would have never had a classroom without one. But that was then and this is now… And as I think about creating one of my own I have run into a road block… I’d have to release some of my books from my white knuckle grip. I’m going to have to get better at sharing.
