I have a Little Library and it has been a blessing to my life. It sits in front of my house. I love to sit on my front porch rocker and watch people stop and take a look inside the library and take books.
At the Texas Library Association Conference in 2016, I met the founder of the Little Libraries. He told us:
"85% of kids who go before the juvenile court system are illiterate."
"The nicest people in our country are Little Free Library stewards."
"(A Little Free Library is) a front porch that extends to the sidewalk, a water cooler on the street."
Here are the Little Free Libraries I have put up in my town:
LITTLE FREE LIBRARY #2924 IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE (2012)
My husband built this little library for me in 2012.
In 2014, I won a grant from my school district to build and maintain five Little Free Libraries in neighborhoods in my school zone.
LITTLE LIBRARY #30157 IN THE FAIR OAKS NEIGHBORHOOD (2015)
LITTLE LIBRARY #37386 IN THE R&H MOBILE HOME PARK (2017)
I have two more Little Free Libraries I plan to put up in January of 2018 and February of 2018.
