Visited my first ever little free library… it was raining so I didn‘t have *as* close a look as I would have liked but I shoved in a DWJ and a Mary Stewart and took out a random book that had a pretty cover 🫣 exciting stuff! ☔️

Kind of tempted to paint my fridge now tbh.

RaeLovesToRead Wow! A fridge library! 2mo

Sapphire Clean girl can mean so many things, but I would think of: Mr Penumbras 24 hour bookstore, A tree grows in Brooklyn. The Night Curcus is a little dark and magic but I don‘t recall lots of foul language or vivid sex scenes- something with Carnivale and it‘s sequel by Stephanie G 3mo

The PTA hosted an end of year party for the kids (school gets out on the 22nd). I rolled out the cart of free books. They still can't believe they get to keep the book.

TheSpineView Not much better than free books! 3mo
mandarchy @TheSpineView the kids are so cute because the books aren't even new, but some will return them to me. 3mo

My Little Free Library garden has been getting it‘s spring spruce up over the last 2 weekends. Got the new baby plants and mulch in today. Mexican Heather and Lantana. I can‘t wait to see how the flowers do! 💜 I added some new books after I was done digging too. 😁📚🌸

I found a #littlefreelibrary!

Wandering today in Beacon NY. Someone left some VHS tapes in there 😂 looks like it could use a better selection, I wonder if anyone is taking care of it?

There‘s one in my neighbourhood I‘ve been meaning to drop some stuff off at but I‘m unsure of the etiquette of dropping multiple books.

SqueakyChu I have my own Little Free Library. For donations, I like people to add books a few at a time. Otherwise the bookshelf gets too overcrowded to browse. For larger donations, I ask people to drop them off at my front door in a plastic bag which is tied closed so rain or snow cannot damage the books. I then release them later, a few at a time. This works for me. 7mo
Kitta @SqueakyChu Oh that‘s great! I‘d love to have my own. Thanks for the advice I‘ll try and figure out who owns the one near me. 7mo
SqueakyChu @Kitta They are so much fun. To get more information about setting up your own, go to littlefreelibrary.org 7mo

Our LFL, The Monarch Manor, opened last week. It was a crazy wild ride and thank God my BFF drove over to help me set up, make sure I ate, and kept my nerves down. I was so scared no one would show up. That was not the case though, we ended up getting 37 books into kids hands in ONE afternoon. I‘m so excited I get to bless children this way! It was a great success!!!

Can we talk about how awesome this dude is? He absolutely hates reading, doesn‘t understand why I do it so much, enjoy it, or spend money on books (I know, I know, he has good qualities too, I swear!) BUT he loves me enough to learn how to wood work, paint, seal, and about a million other little things to make my hearts desire come true! Our families very own LFL!

Please help our Little Free Library reach our goal of 100 books in children‘s hands. We are located a few homes down from the neighborhood k-8th school, so many of the bike rider/walkers go RIGHT PAST OUR HOUSE! We have the opportunity to impact so many children and hopefully start or foster their love of reading and learning. Please repost!

This little jewel is along my walk route. I always stop to peer in for a few seconds and see if there are any new ones. Most of the bottom shelf is fresh books today. Do you have a #FreeLittleLibrary near you?!


marleed Depending on the direction I head, I peruse any of 13 LFLs on my walk (and 3 more discovered last month). Last spring I set out to donate ‘fresh‘ books to the winter-ravished selections. I realized it‘s much easier to walk home with one treasure found than to walk-to with several books to deliver. So I cheated with my car for most of my deliveries! 1y

I spent much of the pandemic off of Twitter, and over the past couple weeks, I‘ve been there more often.

But the blowback this tweet from the Bloomington PD is getting is a great reminder that social media sucks sometimes. People are actually mad that LFL stewards don‘t want their libraries pillaged. “Free means free! Those books are worthless! You‘ve got no proof they‘re being resold!”

This is why we can‘t have nice things.

Colour coordinating the closest little free library! I thought it was a pretty stack, totally unplanned! And then I realized that my little stack matched the #lfl itself! A bit of bookish serendipity maybe? Of course, I tidied it up while I was at it. 😉

I finished planting my LFL garden this morning 😊🌱📚. It‘s hard to see the third row of plants because they‘re deep purple in color. My plan is to add a couple more rows to my “plant rainbow” every year. I‘m looking forward to watching these babies fill out.

@AmyG you were exactly right: I was yucky from my vax for about 36 hours, and got up this morning feeling better except for the achy shoulder. So glad to be done with that!

>>Today's #bookstagram features 2 new "borrows" from the local #LittleFreeLibrary. I dropped off 3 books in exchange for these.

(What's crazy is that it's about time I started thinking about potty-training my child ?)

What books have you recently dropped off and picked up from your community #LFL?

Status: both are on #MountTBR

Found this cute little free library on my camping trip to Slate Run, PA! I post a video featuring little free libraries every Friday on my tik tok @ Morgan.kp!

post image

None of these were enticing so I left them all there for the next person to find. Next time I visit grandma I hope I remember to bring a few books to restock.

AmyG I just visited the one in Vail, a few towns over. It was closed...due to Covid. 😢 I love these and how exciting when you randomly find one! 2y
