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.
