I LOVE the whole idea behind the Little Free Library movement: take a book if you want, leave a book if you can. How simple is that? The best part about the library, though, is how it connects a neighborhood or community.
That’s why I’m SUPER excited to install a Little Free Library in the cafeteria at LHS.
Many people have offered to donate books to our future school library. I often tell them no thank you, because most of our students are not reading books folks read in their college literature courses. And I’m convinced that a room full of books that feel completely irrelevant to most of our students is far worse than a room full of no books.
Why not give them away?
I think the Little Free Library will be a huge success. My friend Derek, a super talented furniture maker, has agreed to make one for us. I’ll post a picture once it arrives.
Until then, here’s one I saw in the Fillmore recently. Clever idea, don’t you think?
