10/24/18 – West side of Columbus OH

While driving around the city this day, we saw what we thought was a cute mailbox. Upon closer inspection we saw the sign underneath that read: The Morrison’s Family Little Free Library; Take a Book, Return a Book. Then we noticed that the little house was an exact replica of the main house! We HAD to take a picture.

When I was preparing this page, I decided to see if I could find out more about this “Little Free Library”. I discovered it is a nonprofit organization that “…inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world.” The organization started in 2009 in Wisconsin and now has over 60,000 locations in the U.S. and 80 other countries. Their website is quite interesting.

3 of 4 people report they’ve read a book they normally would not have read because of a Little Free Library.

73% of people say they’ve met more neighbors because of a Little Free Library.

92% of people say their neighborhood feels like a friendlier place because of a Little Free Library.

      That is very cool! We have at least 2 in our neighborhood. I should go take pictures, even though they are not as cool as this one is.

      Love all of the book elements. I've seen a couple of these around Columbus. What a wonderful idea and the information you discovered about this organization is so interesting.
