Leafy Library

I happened upon yet another of the Little Free Libraries, this one in the Forest Hill neighbourhood. Someone has gone to the trouble to decorate it nicely and since I took this pic the plants have probably grown around it as our weather has finally warmed up. That makes 6 of these Little Free Libraries that I have found so far!

These are great additions to any neighborhood. We don't have them here yet. But I did see a guy the other day walk out of a store with a bag of food when he noticed a box of "free" books on the sidewalk. He filled another bag with books and went his way. I'm thinking the "free" books will end up at a flea market. :)

Wow, you have them there as well! These little libraries (we use them all the time and have special neighborhoods we check out). I think the person that thought of this was totally genius! We have a local hardware store that has an unbelievable amount of designs too.

That is a neat one. I've come across one here recently.

Great idea! I wonder if the owner adds more or if the person comes along has one to trade to keep this fully stocked.
