You’ve probably heard of them before – the “Little Free Library.” It is a movement that started in 2009 of little houses that are placed in front yards and neighborhood entry points throughout the country (even the world!). Neighbors can come and check out books for free with the concept “take a book, return a book.”
As of September a Westview neighbor started her very own “Westview Little Free Library” on South Gordon Street at the corner of Ontario Avenue. A whole spectrum of rotating books can be found at the little library, which is a replica of the owner’s house. The children’s books have been especially popular, so bring the kids to come check out a book. If they write down their thoughts in the “Book Blurbs” the book fairy will even write them a personal response!
The project has been such a success that other neighbors plan to place Little Free Libraries at their houses across the neighborhood.
