So our second step is still in the works. We have decided to put a Little Free Library on our front lawn. If you do not know what this is, it’s a refurbished newspaper box which we are filling up with books. The idea is that neighbours can come by and borrow, read and return books. The hope is that it becomes a connection place in the neighbourhood where people meet and chat.
The box is painted and the books are ready to go. It just needs some touch-ups, some signage and a stable place on our slanted front lawn. We will also probably put a couple of chairs near the box so that people can flip through some books at their leisure.
We have heard some good stories about how well received these Little Free Libraries are and we thought this might be a good idea. We will let you know how things go!
