on a street near you…

Little Free Library mapWe’ve mentioned the Little Free Library project before. Perhaps you’ve noticed the proliferation of the colorful boxes of books in your neighborhood. The Seattle Times book editor and columnist Mary Ann Gwinn has been keeping tabs on book borrowers who stop by her local LFL and she characterizes them in her Lit Life article, “The 6 types of Little Free Library patrons.” And Gwinn is not the only one who’s paying attention. Paula Carey, in Victoria, B.C., captured her Library visitors on video!

If you think Little Free Libraries are a great idea, why not support the LFL Kickstarter campaign that will expand the reach of Little Free Libraries to underserved regions (“book deserts”) and work through schools and police departments to support literacy? It’s a great cause and the campaign ENDS in just three days — Thursday, May 21, 2015, at 9:00pm PDT. There’s a lot more information on the Little Free Library project on the LFL website and on Facebook.

And in case you’re wondering what to do with all those ‘extra’ copies of your chapbook…they’ll be very welcome at a Little Free Library near you, where they just might be discovered by an entirely new audience of lit lovers!
