We purchased our library already assembled, but many people build their own. My wonderful husband and stepson got it all set up and now we are promoting literacy from our front lawn. We initially stocked our LFL with books for all ages and we hope neighbors will stop by and take whatever appeals to them. Visitors can return the books that they take, or not. They can also bring their own books to share with others. LFL books are always a gift – never for sale!
If you didn't already know, the Little Free Library movement is rapidly growing. Many libraries have been installed and thousands of books shared around the country as well as around the world. Little Free Library’s mission is to:
· Promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide.
· To build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations. Check out the LFL story at www.littlefreelibrary.org.
