The LITTLE FREE LIBRARIES that are popping up all over the world have had me a wee bit excited, I have to say. I love the idea of people giving each other books, making books available by installing private little ‘libraries’ in their front yards, their businesses and in public areas. I hope this trend continues. And no, it’s not at odds to our “business” (which, to be honest, has never really been about the ‘business’ anyway) – it’s just another way of saying I LOVE YOU to a book, and being able to spread that love around a little. It’s sweet, and my god, do we need some sweetness and light at the moment. Share! Give! Share and give again.
There are some lovely images of various Little Free Libraries. Have a look at them at the link.
There are also some great images of them on Pinterest. I love this Alice in Wonderland inspired Little Free Library.
And here’s our own:
Let us know what you think. If you’ve made use of our little library, we’d love to hear from you too. Some of the books in our LFL will be extra copies of books that we already stock, and some books will be little gems for you to find. Call it an early Christmas gift to our bookish friends.
