I came across this post today. I think it is a great idea, though not practical every where, to set up a little library like this.
I am thinking of approaching a local coffee shop to see if a library like this can be set up there.
My 2016 New Year’s Resolution is
to have and Steward a
Little Free Library
I don’t usually do NY’s resolutions,
so I’m taking this one very seriously, and
I’m super excited.
I know there are many different feelings about the Little Free Library movement, and it’s mostly positive ( at least within the LFL community.) Unfortunately there has been some nuetral and negative feedback as well. People have made statements that they don’t understand the idea, since we have public libraries. Others say the books and/or library are likely to just be stolen, and/or vandalized/damaged. I’ve also heard people say LFL’s are only in rich neighborhoods, so they aren’t really helping anyone. >:/
I can certainly understand confusion, and most of the various thoughts and feelings about these little wonders. However, I think if you take the time to consider who and what these libraries are really for, you’ll likely begin to see the beauty in them.
