“Without knowing the back story, it doesn’t seem like much: an orange and blue box with a swinging door and a shingled roof, perched on a simple white wooden post.It’s a little free library — a DIY community book exchange where people can take and leave reading materials as they please. You’ve probably seen one much like it in someone’s front yard.But this little free library is different.” (via The News Tribune)

In Little Free Libraries, hope for all paper books

“THE EMERGENCE of the “Little Free Library” demonstrates not just the agility of individuals, but the stiff-jointed hoariness of government. Even as public libraries and their advocates bemoan their increasing irrelevance in a digital culture, they seem impotent to stop it. Succumbing to the perceived need to offer e-books, many offer online borrowing, contributing to their own demise by becoming the worst kind of middleman: one dependent on taxpayer dollars. In doing so, they abandon their foundation, and perhaps eventual savior — the physical book.” (via The Boston Globe)
