I’ve mentioned Little Free Libraries before here but today I wanted to give you a little more detail about them. Plus some friends of mine are talking about them too.
I first found out about them from my friend Karla’s post about it. It was love at first sight! I instantly wanted to go find the ones in my area but it took a while to find a day where I had nothing to do. Penny, the dog, and I drove around to the ones I could find in Jacksonville. It was so much fun! Like a geocache or Easter egg hunt! Below are shots of the ones I found.
I dropped off 5 books and took home three. I picked up a book for my husband that he really liked, one for my brother and a tea mystery book for my friend Lisa and she ended up loving it so much she checked out the whole series from the library. Nothing for me.
If you want to see if there are any near you go to the Little Free Library website and click on “map” (or just follow the link I gave you.) I like to use the “city/state” feature to see all the ones in the city I’m interested. For example, here’s what you find for Jacksonville, FL:
See the southernmost one? I live near there but that LFL is located in an elementary school so I haven’t visited that one. I looked for the ones that are clustered around the downtown area.
And when we were in the Virginia Mountains this summer, we accidentally found one by the Peaks of Otter Lodge!
Have you ever visited a Little Free Library? Do you have them in your town? Tell me below!
