Little Free Library

 

Who did I happen to see this last week at the Little Free Library at the end of the parking lot?

An elderly man  neighborhood who walks over to get his books.  He told me he never went to the regular library any more.

Someone walking their dog, there are dog treats in our little free library.

And our mail delivery person!

All the cookbooks and I’ve put in there now gone. I’m going to add this one today.

This is a rescue cookbook from the thrift store. I never cook anything out of these books I just sit and read them over and over, they are like good friends.

Need to introduce my friends to others right?

 

Thrift Store Rescue!

A small food bank run by a local church near me has an even smaller free library for the families and homeless people it serves.

No children’s books!?!  Gotta fix that!  Children need books to nourish their minds   For less than $15.00 these books will fill the lower shelf of the small library for those kids!

 

Thrift Store Rescue and Little Free Library

One of my favorite things to rescue from the thrift store is cookbooks. I read them like other people read books but I don’t ever cook anything out of them. I have quite a stack of books.

Matthew over at his little free library gave me the idea of putting some cookbooks into the little free library in the parking lot at my work. Cookbooks are popular reads in their library.  Mathew’s Little Free Library

Little free library a.k.a. book exchange

I recently forgot to bring a book for an errand (to the motor vehicle division) where I knew I was in for a long wait.  There is a Little Free Library or Book Exchange at the end of the parking lot at work and I found this book by P.D. James in there.  I am embarrassed to say I had not heard of her or read anything by her.

Her writing style is something new to me and I am really enjoying reading this book!  Unfortunately she died a couple of years ago.  She did write over 20 books in her lifetime so I will be able to continue to read her mystery novels.

“When I first heard that Humpty Dumpty fell off the wall,” she was fond of saying, “I immediately wondered: Did he fall — or was he pushed?”

Who knows how many books are sitting on shelves waiting to be read or reread.  Or do you have a favorite book you want to share with others?  Just place it in the free reading library!  You may change someone’s life.

Booker here, a guest blogger at sanseilife and a Little Free Library.

Who visits the Little Free Library?

John and his dog Shadow visit every day for 2 dog treats.  Shadow first must sit and then shake hands.

John never even looked at the books.  Just not interested in reading some story.  Today this book caught his eye.

John has always wondered about fly fishing and just retired last year.  John definitely has the reading bug now!

Who knows how many books are sitting on shelves waiting to be read or reread.   This free program allows you to pick a book, keep it for as long as you need to finish reading it, return it and exchange it for a new book.

Or do you have a favorite book you want to share with others?  Just place it in the free reading library!  You may change someone’s life.

This is really a neighborhood book exchange located in the small suburb of Arvada, Colorado at 74th and Wadsworth.  It creates an opportunity for neighbors to share books, including children’s books.

The best part?  Note the dog treats!

Booker out now, hope to see you soon.
