A growing trend here in Seattle, and in my neighborhood of Magnolia, is to host a Little Free Library – take a book, return a book.  The organization started in 2009 with a two-fold mission:

  • 1. To promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide.
  • 2. To build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations

The goal is to build over 2,500 Little Free Libraries to promote reading for children, literacy for adults and provide free libraries around the world.  And it’s a great way to get books off your crowded bookshelf to share with others!  I’m considering hosting one.  To find out more go to the Little Free Library website and follow the directions in Get Started link.  While you’re on the site, check out your neighborhood by going to Locations.  How many Little Free Libraries are close to you?
