Little free library

Having been entirely captivated by the phenomena of
little library book exchanges
popping up at the rate of baby rabbits on my local landscape,
I am taking first steps to creating one of my own.
[little library not little rabbit!]
As I've considered the value and impact of this project,
I've also wondered if other book lovers [and bloggers] might be interested in joining me...
For those who might be asking, what is a free little library...?
The brain child of 2 american fellas in 2009.
Read all about the Little Free Library history HERE
Their mission?  From the website -
"To promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide and to build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations. There are over 30,000 Little Free Library book exchanges around the world, bringing curbside literacy home and sharing over 1 million books annually.
As book reading and reviewing bloggers, we're all about promoting literacy and the love of reading.
I see little free libraries as a tangible way of increasing our reach.  For all those extra books on our shelves, we have a creative option.
Build a little library of our own to distribute books to fellow readers and increase book love in our own communities.  Established on the principle of "Leave a book  Take a book  Share a book",
library stock is continually evolving and revolving.  Without fees or overdues!  From childrens to diy, stock can vary by the day.
Have you seen little free libraries in your area?  Already set one up?
I've created a pinterest board of info and inspy as I pursue creating my own.  I'm happy to share the ideas HERE and look forward to adding any info you'd like to share. Tell us more!
I anticipate making this a blog series as the project progresses.  If [and when] you choose to join in, I definitely want to see your project. I would love to have everyone share their participation + stories..
Should I create a linkup?  If you are considering this, please do comment your responses.
I would be so excited to share the journey with fellow blogging book lovers :) !  And, of course, follow each other's progress.
We really can make an impact on and in our communities with this opportunity.  HERE are some stories with more to come.
I've made my case.  Now I await your input.
Much like I'll be awaiting the book input for my little library!
Thanks for spreading the word .
