You never know where you’ll find a Little Library when you’re walking about your own city or a new space.
And that’s what happened to me this weekend when I discovered a Little Library at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Newport, Kentucky when I traveled to Kentucky this weekend.
Tucked near the southwest corner of the church, the Little Library was sponsored by Northern Kentucky University.
What is a Little Library?
If you’re not familiar with the concept of a Little Library or Little Free Library, it’s a decorated box that provides shelter for free books in a community.
People are encouraged to take a book and leave a book for others to enjoy.
The Little Libraries are built by volunteers, who often get their building instructions and online resources from the Little Free Libraries website.
In Detroit, I’ve seen Little Libraries along the Detroit Riverwalk, at Lafayette Gardens, and at the Belle Isle Nature Zoo.
According to the Little Libraries website, there are over 60,000 Little Libraries in more than 80 countries around the world.
Have you seen Little Libraries in your community?
