Little Free Library 

with 5 comments


I have heard about these little free libraries, appearing in cities all over North America. And now we have at least two in Fredericton.

A delightful expression of community! I love the stump or stone step so a child can borrow from the little library!

~

The idea is simple … take a book, leave a book. It’s a way to find some great new reading, visit a part of the community you may not know well and promote literacy.

As of this morning, I have left a copy of my poetry book within easy reach’ at two of these tiny libraries, one in Sunshine Gardens and one on University Avenue. If you want to go on a treasure hunt and borrow a book, make sure to take a book with you to trade! Happy reading!

  1. My daughter-in-law in Toronto installed one of these. Even with people with houses full of books it has been welcomed, and also builds community.
