There were a couple of new Little Free Libraries along my bike route! This was my favourite.

We are go for launch here at our LFL. Henry helped me set up the books. I've since added a few more plus a box of assorted colorable bookmarks. I'm so excited. I really hope our neighbors love to read.

shanaqui I'd love to make one of these someday, because I'm usually ready to let go of books as soon as I've finished them, and it'd be such a nice way to share. This one looks lovely! 6mo

My LFL should be totally installed and ready for books tomorrow afternoon. I'm thinking we'll do a grand opening sort of thing Saturday. Any suggestions for non-book items I should put in for this weekend, like bookmarks?

LiteraryinLawrence Love this! Maybe fliers for the local library? I‘ve seen people put out dog treats? 6mo
Leftcoastzen Cool! 6mo
Ruthiella One in my neighborhood has a side basket for fruit - like lemons and oranges from the backyard. 6mo
Traci1 @LiteraryinLawrence dog treats! I hadn't thought about that but we have tons of dogwalkers in our little neighborhood. ❤️ 6mo
Traci1 @Ruthiella that's such a neat idea. I saw one that had an herb garden around theirs, but I have 2 black thumbs. I kill every plant I get near. 🙁 6mo

I've been dreaming of having a little free library for years. Yesterday, my husband asked if I still wanted to do it, and of course I said yes. So, looks like I'll be getting this one soonish. BIG Yay!! 😁

If you have a LFL or have been thinking about it, do you have any suggestions? Things you'd do again or do differently?

AmyG Yay! So cute. 7mo
jlhammar Wonderful! I‘ve had one for years and love it. A great way to share books with neighbors. I try to be a good steward and make sure there is new stock regularly and pull out the stuff some people leave that nobody wants. Enjoy! 7mo
KCofKaysville @Traci. I love ´em in my SLC area. 7mo

Johanna414 My advice is to not feel guilty removing items that no one is going to want and dispose of em. I have a Facebook page for mine and post photos of what's currently in the library every month or so. I notice I always get a boost in traffic when I do that. I've had mine about a year and its been super rewarding! 7mo
marleed I love all the LFLs in my area. I live in a very walkable area and I‘m fortunate to walk by many. When I borrow a book, I try to return within the week and donate two other books. Sometimes I take weathered books and recycle so there‘s room for fresher books. 7mo
EvieBee Yay! Color theme ideas? I don‘t have one but I have a few favorites I visit and I always enjoy rearranging the books if they get untidy. I also appreciated one owner putting a light in there that pops on when you open it. Ingenious idea for night walkers! 🤓 (edited) 7mo
Christine Thrilling!! 7mo
LibrarianChels If you need more books, check with your local public library. Often we withdrawal duplicate copies of bestsellers and other books that aren‘t circulating that are still in great condition. As a public library director, I‘m always happy to help supply when someone asks. 7mo
Traci1 @Johanna414 do you mind sharing your Facebook pave? I'd love to see what all you post. My daughter, who'll be 20 this month is going to be helping me out with it, and she was thrilled with the Facebook page idea. 7mo
Johanna414 @Traci1 of course! Here's a link to one of my posts - you should be able to follow that to the whole page. I don't know how to share the page from my phone lol https://www.facebook.com/116440463465765/posts/484193443357130/?sfnsn=mo 7mo

Just received this donation for my school library. Many of these books will go in the #littlefreelibrary I plan to install soon.

KrisNelson I want to do the free library outside my school somewhere! 1y
mandarchy @KrisNelson I ordered one and told my principal it was donated and got permission from grounds to install it. It's currently being painted in my garage. But talk to be before you do it, I made a major mistake, I'll explain later. Oh. And I pretended to go through site team. There was one negative ninny. You'll never guess who... 1y
KrisNelson Save me All About Scabs…sounds, um, gross! 1y

Penguins, rejoice! The South Pole now has its own Little Free Library. The new book-sharing box was built by Russell Schnell, a scientist for the ​National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)​. Schnell says, “Books with photos of colorful trees, warm deserts, water, beaches, wheat fields, and animals and birds are popular at the South Pole.”

My town recently installed several Little Free Libraries (hooray!) but I suspect the locations were not selected by a reader. This one is near the community garden, which is only used 6 months of the year. Another one was placed along a walking trail with no nearby parking. Guess books will be my new walking partner!

tpixie I guess it‘s a start!! Maybe it will introduce more non-readers to Books! 2y

I got back from Asheville a little bit ago & didn‘t have time to post these earlier. Even though Malaprops was closed, I still got to visit my favorite Black Mountain store—Sassafrass on Sutton. They have a cute LFL out front. We also saw the LEGO sculptures at the Arboretum. The spider wasn‘t my favorite, but it made me think of Halloween. The sculptures are always amazing. Asheville was doing such a great job with covid rules! #scarathlon

wanderinglynn I love Asheville. 👍🏻 One of my favorite chocolate shops is there—Chocolate Fetish. 2y

I borrowed from a new LFL today so now I need to find my way back to it and replace 2 great books with 2 different great books! 3y
TheSpineView @marleed Several neighbors donate but I donate the majority. Historical fiction and women's fiction are what get taken. I tried poetry books, fantasy and YA and no one seems I terested. I put in the ARCs I get once I am done with them 3y

Look what I found in my backyard on my run today. I decided to try a different route through the office park instead of around lakes since that area is starting to get a lot of people. This way kept me away from everyone. My apartment community backs to an office park. Novelist office and two free little libraries!

Lcsmcat Symphony Lake? I like that trail, but I‘m sure it‘s very people-y right now! 3y
Graciouswarriorprincess Nope. Not Symphony Lake. This is a little lake by my apartment community in Durham. But it sits next to an apartment community which is why it is popular. It‘s about a mile from me but I can run to it. But if I run through the office park, there is no one and it has a lovely trail. @Lcsmcat (edited) 3y

Graciouswarriorprincess @Jeg. I have seen some shut down, others with books in plastic bags saying they have been wiped down and please don‘t touch unless you are taking one, some with food and other things in them. I guess it depends on the stewarts who take care of them. (edited) 3y
