Share your own Little Free Library

I feel like it's been way too long since my last post.  A quick trip to visit a friend in VT and another quick trip to visit family in MN in-between teaching, and the time has slipped away, yet inspiration can be found everywhere.  I was taking a walk with my sister and my aunt's dog and we happened upon this adorable Little Free Library in a Duluth neighborhood in MN.

One of the things that I've always loved about traveling and staying in more casual inns,  youth hostels or B&Bs is that often there's a place to take a book and return a book, so that you're never left without reading material. That's why I love the idea of the Little Free Library so much. What a clever way to share books with other readers, and in this case, with your neighbors, while also donating a book or two. How fun to have a library of ever-changing books to boot! After seeing this one, I immediately went to the Little Free Library organization's website where I learned about the history, locations of other LFLs around the world, designs to make your own LFL, and the store to buy a ready-made one. There are no real rules for making  or having your own except to register it with the LFL organization and post an official charter sign and number on it.  I am so excited to start making my own Little Free Library, and I have the perfect place to put it...outside the privet of our small house on Surfside Road on Nantucket Island in MA.  A perfect place with a lot of foot traffic, along the bike path between town and Surfside Beach. Hoping to debut my own Little Free Library late summer or early fall.
