Neighborhood Book Exchanges

I’ve become intrigued this week with a new type of library that has sprung up since 2009. These are boxes mounted in front yards to hold books for people to help themselves to and leave other books. They go by a variety of names including Neighborhood Book Exchanges. Little Free Libraries. Community Libraries, book trading posts, pop-up libraries, libraries in a box, and take a book return a book.

What I like is the free spirit of these small libraries. I have visited several in my city and they are colorful and offer an eclectic set of books.

Here are a few pictures:
