Little Free Libraries

Today I want to write to you about Little Free Libraries.

First, let’s start off with how I came to know them myself. Picture this, you are walking down a residential road in a city. The sun is shining down on you. You might be sweating in this blistering heat. Don’t ask me where I’m going with this but uh, you spot a blue wooden box at eye level across the street perched on a metal fence.

Painted a refreshing ocean blue with a windowed door providing a glimpse at the various books inside. There’s a note on the side of the box that says “take a book, share a book”.

Being in a city you question how it is filled with book instead of being empty because the stereotypical midnight robbers vandalized and stole them. It is New York City after all. Regardless, you find it so intriguing that you tell yourself you’ll be back one day with a book entow.

Thank you sticking with me so far, It isn’t everyday I get to write things like this. In the end I did end up going back to that box and even took a trip to another one nearby to me to exchange books.

Those boxes are Little Free Libraries. They exist as a way for the community they’re in to exchange books and therefore knowledge. Personally I like reading books and to be honest that day I went I was just bored.

In exchange for Fahrenheit 451 and Ava and Pip I took Designing Your Life and The Orphan’s Tale. I’ll read them soon and maybe write a review for fun.

That’s all for today’s post. Thank you for reading and I highly encourage you to find one of those boxes yourself and exchange some knowledge with your community.

I totally didn’t write this in my English class instead of writing about the actual assignment (¬‿¬)
