One thing I was sad to lose in our recent move was our Little Free Library.
That’s it before it was installed in our old front yard.
Well, good news! The Homeowners’ Association at our townhouse has approved a Little Free Library! Once they tell us where we can install it, we’ll be figuring out the best form and structure. It might end up just like the original, or it could be completely different. Either way, it looks like we’ll be able to continue to encourage and support community literacy! Wheeeee!

Fantastic Laura. It seems as if all you had to do was to put the idea out there. I am finally convinced that real books and bookstores and libraries are here to stay and not on their way out as some would lead you to believe.
EsPECially for kids’ books. I admit to doing most of my novel reading on a Kindle, but I think we will always need libraries as the holders of our information and entertainment, no matter what form the books and stories are in…
I totally love Little Free Libraries and discovered a new one on a walk last night. What a delightful way to share the books we’ve loved.
I did, too (discover a new one nearby on a dog walk the other night). Fun:>)

We don’t have any in the town where we live in New York. My husband and I spent the summer in the community of Shorewood in Milwaukee for a consulting job. There were little free libraries scattered throughout the area. It was so charming. I’m glad you’ll be able to resurrect yours. 🙂
Maybe you should start one (hint, hint)!
