Build Your Own -- Little Tiny Library

Early on in the life of this blog, I had a post about portable libraries.  The idea was to bring books to people.  Here's another, highly entertaining and creative way to do it.  A well-written story (and more pics) about Little Free Libraries is here at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Online.  What a great idea for home schoolers, perhaps.  I can imagine something like this posted near a community garden or local farmer's market would be pretty fun.

And below is the video that accompanies it.

  1. Wonderful idea, and it's catching on worldwide. The musical performer Amanda Palmer (and wife of writer Neil Gaiman) recently posted a photo of a tiny exchange library housed in a non-working refrigerator on her blog (http://tinyurl.com/7agd9sy - second photo from top). Appropriately and poignantly, it's located at the ground zero site of last year's major earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand.
