Little Free Libraries in the Park

I have several adopt-a-park groups that would love to install little free libraries in their adopted parks. In a nutshell, this is a "take a book, leave a book" station that looks like an oversized (and cute!) birdhouse. So far, the first little free library has been a great success at Golden Community Park. My volunteers report that over 100 books have circulated through this station since it was installed last month! I am focusing on installing these in low income areas with poor access to libraries and book stores.

Please see here for more info on the Little Free Library concept: http://www.littlefreelibrary.org. I also submitted this idea to the Texas Public Radio's Lighter Quicker Cheaper contest and it made it to the final stage. Lots of community support for this neat concept.
