Little library

My family and I received a “little library” for Christmas. If you’ve never heard of such a thing here’s a description:

What is a Little Free Library and what’s so special about it?

A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. They come in many shapes and sizes, but the most common version is a small wooden box of books. Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share.

Little Free Library book exchanges have a unique, personal touch. There is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community; Little Libraries have been called “mini-town squares.”

After stocking it with some of my old books and suffering a minor wind incident, I’ve reinforced ours with an old campaign sign (possibly the best use ever for an old campaign sign, unless you need spacers for cutting concrete, but that’s a different story). So, if you’re in the neighborhood and would like to grab a book, get rid of a book or just want to peruse a bit feel free to take a look. It’s sort of hidden under our spruce tree until things thaw enough that I can sink the necessary 4×4 post, but you’ll find it, I’m sure.

Oh, and be on the lookout for when my boys go through their collection – I’m sure they’ll add a few volumes as well!
