The Little Free Library
On a recent trip to Lake Norman, North Carolina, we took a day trip down to NoDa, a popular arts district in Charlotte, North Carolina. On our way to Cabo Fish Taco (best. fish. tacos. ever.), we walked by a house that had a little box on the front lawn. And inside the little box there were books, easily a dozen and a half, of all types, genres, and sizes. At the top of the box were the words: Little Free Library. At the time, I thought it was just a great idea of some local homeowner, putting a bunch of books in a box for people to borrow and exchange. It wasn’t until I was driving around in my own little town that I saw a second box of books with a Little Free Library sign and I realized that this little free library thing was really a thing.
