Our neighborhood has a few of these adorable Little Free Libraries. There are about 2500 more of these tiny libraries around the world, many in remote places that have no access to a public library. The idea for the little library started in the state of Wisconsin in 2009. Todd Bol created it as a tribute to his mother who was a school teacher. A terrific example of how small things can cause great change for communities.
