A LITTLE FREE LIBRARY in My Neighborhood Or Yours!

By Carolinearnoldtravel @CarolineSArnold
A LITTLE FREE LIBRARY in My Neighborhood or Yours!I was out for a walk around my West Los Angeles neighborhood the other day and discovered that one of my neighbors has put up a library box in front of their house.  It is full of books free for the taking. You can also contribute books to share with the community. I had heard about the free library movement, but this was the first time I had seen it near me.
The Little Free Library movement was started by a group of  builders, stewards, book donors, borrowers, neighbors and friends in Minnesota and Wisconsin. The mission of this movement as stated on the main website is:
  •    To promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide.
  •    To build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity, and wisdom across generations
  •    To build more than 2,510 libraries around the world – more than Andrew Carnegie!
A LITTLE FREE LIBRARY in My Neighborhood or Yours!Inspired by this noble mission a group of people have begun to build a network of Little Free Libraries in the West Los Angeles area. If you are interested in becoming a librarian by building a little free library at your home, school or community center, please contact the Little Free Library for more information.
