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.
awesome! You can check out my little free library, in the UK, here: https://freelandlittlefreelibrary.wordpress.com/
Thanks, Matthew. What a great space you have! About a month ago, my daughter, and a friend of mine along with her daughter, went to all the Free Little Libraries in Lancaster and placed a copy of my book, “Six Sisters” in each. There were only six, coincidentally, so it didn’t break my personal piggybank, and it was tons of fun. I’d love to donate a copy to your little free library as a way to spread intercontinental free library love. If you’re interested, email me at email@example.com with an address. I’ll pop a book in the mail to you asap! Yours in literacy, pjl

Thank you so much, that would be great. It’s very generous of you! I’ll send you an email.
So…going to put one up soon?
I would LOVE to, but we don’t get any foot traffic where we live. Perhaps I should do it anyway and tell friends who come for dinner that they have to bring a book and take a book or they don’t eat!
