Earlier tonight I did a book reading (Middle Class Philanthropist: How anyone can leave a legacy) at the Spring Green Community Library. Afterwards we fellow book lovers and librarian junkies got on the topic of Free Little Libraries. I had not heard of a new trend, but am intrigued. Using the Google map of all the Free Little Library locations, people use GPS' to locate as many in their area, traveling with books to leave and a box to place new ones they pick up along the way. Sounds like a random and inexpensive way to spend a Saturday, acquire some new reading material, and if you have wee ones in your home cultivate another generation of book worms.
Keep reading, this is something we'll add to our agenda. I just have to figure out if my phone has a GPS and if so, how to use it!
