I ran across a little story the other day about a man named Todd Bol. Todd built a tiny version of a one-room schoolhouse and mounted it on a post in front of his home in Wisconsin. Then, to honor his mother, a teacher, he filled it with books for neighbors to borrow!
Now, three years later, there are 6,500 "little libraries" across the nation! What a fantastic idea!!! If you live in a neighborhood with kids you could fill it with Dr. Seuss or books for tweens. If you live in a neighborhood full of retired folks, you could fill it with books that would appeal to them. You could literally tailor your "little library" to your very own neighborhood.
I have decided to do this up at our cabin. It is pretty isolated (50 minutes one way to the nearest library) and I know the folks in the canyon would love this idea!
