The Little Free Library Book

By (author) Margret Aldrich

<p>""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</p><p>""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. <I>The Little Free Library Book</I> 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.</p><p><B>Margret Aldrich</B> is a freelance writer and editor. Her articles have appeared in the <I>Utne Reader</I>, <I>Experience Life!</I>, and elsewhere. She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with her family.</p><BR>
