Have you heard about Little Free Libraries?!? I hadn’t until recently. A friend of mine spent an afternoon finding some of the Little Free Libraries in her city, and I thought the whole thing sounded just amazing!
Little Free Libraries are “take a book, leave a book” book exchanges. Most of the libraries are small wooden boxes of some sort, and they hold a variety of books. Visitors may take a book and/or leave a book. Pretty cool, right? Little. Free. Libraries!
I spent an hour or so finding some of the Little Free Libraries around Savannah and took some pictures to share here!
This one has a red roof just like its steward’s house! The steward of this one saw me looking at the books and came outside her house to chat for a few minutes! She told me that her kids purchased the library for her, and she’s having a blast with it.
The second Little Free Library I found was tucked away at the back of a community garden. It was a lovely, peaceful place in the middle of the city! This one featured a higher box AND a lower box that allowed easy access for kids! I thought that was just the coolest thing ever!
The last one I found looked totally different from the first two! The books were beautifully arranged. Someone had even shared some seed packets!
I’m so taken by these libraries, that I’m looking for a spot in my neighborhood to put one! I’ll keep you posted on that project!
