Here’s how my 2-year-old and I stumbled upon this gem … a neighborhood walk.

The sign reads:

Little Free Library #1908
In the beginning -2009–Todd Bol of Hudson, Wisconsin, built a model of a one room schoolhouse as a tribute to his mother, a former school teacher who loved reading. He filled it with books and put it on a post in his front yard. His neighbors and friends loved it. He built several more and gave them away. Each one had a sign that said FREE BOOKS.

Our Mission
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.

Learn more at the Little Free Libary’s website. Or see if one is in your neighborhood.

To our friends at #1908: We’ll return and donate some books soon.  Thanks for an adorable way of sharing books (and literacy) with the world and our neighborhood.  One Little Book Library at a time.
