There are Little Free Libraries all over San Diego

The Little Free Libraries concept was created in 2009 by Todd Bol of Hudson of Wisconsin. He built a model of a one room schoolhouse as a tribute to his mother, a former school teacher who loved reading. He filled it with books and put it on a post in his front yard. His neighbors and friends loved it. He built several more and gave them away. Each one had a sign that said FREE BOOKS.

Through Little Free Libraries, millions of books are exchanged each year, profoundly increasing access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds. Studies have repeatedly shown that books in the hands of children have a meaningful impact on improving literacy.

The more books in or near the home, the more likely a child will learn and love to read. But two out of three children living in poverty have no books to call their own.

Little Free Library book-sharing boxes play an essential role by providing 24/7 access to free books to the public.

Personal Experience: The Little Free Library is special for so many reasons. I love how each library is crafted differently from all the others and created with an obvious amount of love. This concept is so simple and yet can be so effective if we let it. The purpose is to get us to read and share our books instead of just throwing them out, selling them or letting them collect dust on our bookshelf. You never know what book may change your life!
