Notes from An Alien

~ Explorations In Reading, Writing, and Publishing ~

Start Your Own (little) Library . . .


I have a friend in the U.S. state of Wisconsin who had a wonderful surprise while walking in the historic Astor Park area of Green Bay.

Little Free Library

She kept seeing Little Libraries

The kind where you Take A Book — Leave A Book.

I’m pretty sure my friend tipped me off to this world-wide movement back in 2012 and I wrote the post, Little Libraries Spreading All Over :-)

The idea was started by Todd Bol and Rick Brooks and you can find out all you need to know to build one or buy one or join the movement or just ponder the phenomenon of book sharing that doesn’t use the Internet at the Official Little Free Library Site :-)

And, this map hints at the spread of these little wonders. Little Free Libraries

My friend sent me the following links to show the increased interest in her part of the world:

Reading Efforts Expand Into Parks & Neighborhoods

New Little Free Library – Sunlight Park

and

Little Free Library

You can see lots of pictures of the creativity and inventiveness that go into these Little Libraries here, here, and here

And, you can do some research about it all Here

Btw, my friend is a writer and you can read her blog :-)

Now, a video…

    Thanks for continuing to spread the word of these efforts Alex. I think Kristyna Wentz-Graff also deserves a thanks for her photography in the south part of the state.
