Little Free Library Promotes Reading and Community

10:21 AM, Aug 28, 2018

The Little Free Library is a non-profit organization that provides small, birdhouse-like structures meant to be filled with books and shared within communities. The concept of The Little Free library is a book exchange program based only on the merits of others to return or replace a book from the box.

The organization was started by Todd Bol in Wisconsin and was meant as a tribute to his late mother who worked as a teacher and loved to read. The concept gained speed as others adopted the idea and Little Free Libraries began to pop-up all over the nation.

The idea not only brings books and learning into communities but it also promotes fellowship as communities begin to interact with each other more by exchanging books and meeting their neighbors. It also serves as an attraction for business and adds value to neighborhoods.
