Monday’s Food for Thought: The Little Free Library Movement

As the wife of an academic, and a voracious reader of a lot of books, I came across this website, and immediately fell in love.

If you haven’t heard of The Little Free Library movement, please go check it out.

The free book exchange concept, called a “movement” by most stewards, began in 2009 with a single mini-library in Wisconsin, and has since spread all over the world, with libraries registered in 45 States and over 20 countries.

The founders, Rick Brooks and Todd Bol, would like to have 2,510 libraries established – which would be more than Andrew Carnegie endowed.

There are countless stories on the web of how this movement is impacting communities and neighborhoods.

What could you do to further their mission in your neighborhood?
