Micro-libraries - Little Free LibraryMicro-Libraries- Mailbox-style micro-libraries around the U.S.

 

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.

  1. What a great idea. I always carry in my car several copies of my books. Then whenever I’m at a place where books are out — my dentist’s office or a coffeeshop — I leave one.

    And I really like the “honor system” behind it. I believe that if you trust people, most will rise to that level of trust.
