Musing Mondays–Little Free Libraries: “Take A Book, Return A Book!”

Right, after finished a rather interesting blogging activity for a sociology module I went in search of some book related articles to blog about and stumbled rather conveniently upon this;

Little Free Library is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization whose mission is to promote a sense of community, reading for children, literacy for adults and libraries around the world . . . In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share . . . Little Free Libraries themselves are hand-crafted structures that contain constantly changing collections of books donated and shared by people of all ages and backgrounds. Most Little Free Libraries are placed in front yards, parks, gardens and easily accessible locations . . . Some Libraries are located in coffee shops, in or near restaurants and community centers. . . It’s a ‘take a book, return a book’ gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories . . .”

I went onto the map and found that there are little free libraries in the UK there are only in a couple but over the USA there are an abundance of them! SO, the plan is to try and see how difficult it is to set one up here right here on the Keele University Campus. Fingers crossed I can do this and I’ll keep you informed!
