"Take a book, leave a book." You've noticed them in neighborhoods and public spaces; you've read about them on the Internet and in magazines, heard about them on the radio, and seen them on television. Across the nation and around the world, Little Free Libraries are popping up all over, creating a sense of community, boosting literacy, and developing readers. The idea is simple: set up a Little Free Library near the street in front of your house, school, church, or workplace (get permission if necessary), then seed it with books you love but no longer want or need. Ask neighbors, friends, and coworkers to contribute books. Fiction or nonfiction. Paperbacks, hardcovers, kids' books, whatever. Registration materials are included so you can go online and add your library's location to the "Little Free Library Map of the World". Once people discover your Little Free Library, they'll start taking books -- and leaving books. Care for your library, be a good steward, and you'll soon find you've added something positive and vital to your neighborhood, town, or city. The Little Free Library arrives assembled with everything you need, except mounting pole and, of course, the books. Dedicate it to a special teacher or booklover, create a memorial; it's a gesture that lifts the entire community. Paint and decorate it anyway you wish, it's a great family or neighborhood project. You'll receive an official Little Free Library charter sign and Steward's Kit with helpful information. Measures 19"w x 23"h x 16"d. Sales benefit Little Free Library, a nonprofit founded by Midwesterners Todd Bol and Rick Brooks. And the library benefits everyone. Allow 4-6 weeks for delivery. No rush delivery or gift box.
