What started as a simple idea to promote literacy and encourage community has become a movement. Little Free Libraries—front-yard book exchanges—now number more than 20,000 in 75 countries. This tells the history of these charming libraries, gathers quirky and poignant stories from owners, provides a resource guide, and delights readers with color images of the most creative and inspired LFLs around.

“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.

To be released in April from Coffee House Press as part of its Books in Action initiative, The Little Free Library Book highlights the people behind the Little Free Library movement.

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.
