In NJ, little libraries with big results

“Resting on a post near the sidewalk on Tuxedo Road in Montclair is a miniature house, cobbled together from a wine crate, leftover construction shingles and other scrap materials. Behind the glass door are about 20 books of various genres arranged on a shelf. This is the Little Free Library, something of a community spot for meeting and reading, where no library card is needed and no late fees are charged. “It’s a very eclectic mix and it’s all community-driven,” says the library’s steward, Jon Bonesteel, of his revolving catalog. “Oftentimes, I’ll come home to find bags of books on my front porch that I can then cycle through the library, and they tend to go. It’s nice to see the turnover of the books.” (via NJ.com)
