For scoots and giggles I decided to take a different route home on my bicycle. Right in my neighborhood just a few blocks from my home I found a Little Free Library! It was so neat! I've heard of this concept and seen examples online, but have never seen one in my own neighborhood. The neat things about these little libraries is you just open the little door and take whatever book you want. If you have a book you'd like to donate to the Little Free Library, you just put it in there. After you read the book, you can return it...or not. No late fees, no due dates, no checking in and out. This is community at its best. These Little Free Libraries run entirely on community. It's a wonderful way to keep book circulating in a community.
I made a point when I got home to put some used books in my bicycle bag. The next time I passed through there I placed some books in the library. Though there were no books in there at that time that I was interested in borrowing, it made me smile to browse through their little selection and it made me just as happy to be able to donate some books.
