The Little Free Library Book, Hardback Book

The Little Free Library Book Hardback


"The Little Free Library is a terrific example of placing books--poetry included--within reach of people in the course of their everyday lives.

Free is always a good thing, and the project has a nice give-and-take feel to it.

Here's hoping we bump into literature when we turn the next corner--before we have time to resist!"--Billy Collins "Take a book.

Return a book." In 2009, Todd Bol built the first Little Free Library as a memorial to his mom.

Five years later, this simple idea to promote literacy and encourage community has become a movement.

Little Free Libraries--freestanding front-yard book exchanges--now number twenty thousand in seventy countries.

The Little Free Library Book tells the history of these charming libraries, gathers quirky and poignant firsthand stories from owners, provides a resource guide for how to best use your Little Free Library, and delights readers with color images of the most creative and inspired LFLs around. Margret Aldrich is a freelance writer and editor. Her articles have appeared in the Utne Reader, Experience Life!, and elsewhere.

She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with her family.
