Created by Todd Bol and Josie Pradella, the Tiny House libraries are a concept geared at fighting analphabetism and promote literacy. The mail box style micro-libraries are a place where people can take a bookand replaceit with another, providing access to free books to anyone in the area.
The project aims to create 2510 such micro-libraries and is going well as shown on this Google micro-libraries map.
Here is a short movie about the reaction to a new such micro-library in the neighborhood.
