Little Free Library

Recently I acquired a Little Free Library from my blogger friend Jennifer at Jenx67.  After a couple weeks of busy schedules and a melt down or two, Dear Husband and I were finally able to get the posts set, library secured and painted and now we are ready to go!  (installation instructions for the carpentry challenged coming soon)

The LFL came with several books to get us started.  I had the boys pull a couple of books from their rooms so they could feel a part of the process.  I also pulled Divergent and Cold Mountain out of my collection to entice the adults in our neighborhood to participate.  A few neighbors stopped by while I was painting it to find out what the heck this was all about.  None of them had heard of LFL before so I decided to included a informational sheet inside to help neighbors know how to use it.

I can’t wait to see what books neighbors borrow and leave for others to enjoy.

Now I’m curious…have you seen one of these cute little libraries in your area?  Have you ever borrowed a book or left a book?  Do you know anyone (besides me) who has put up a LFL?  What do you think?

    I love the Little Free Library! And yours looks so nice. I love that you have stuff for kids and adults in there too, because everyone needs to read!

    We talked about why we wanted to read the book and what we thought it might be about. We read together and discussed what we thought the characters might be feeling. This was a great way for them to get involved in the book selection process and to learn more about the book.
