Little Library at the Bus Stop

I had to stop and get out of my car to photograph this new (to me) scene.

Little Libraries have been posted on the blog before -in the snow , one Laura found and one in Pittsburgh on Friendship Avenue

Here’s the one I saw today

And a bench to sit on and read while you wait for the bus

  1. They are brilliant, aren’t they, Ruth? In fact, I almost included one in today’s post, sitting quietly beside our cafe, I almost didn’t spot it!

  2. These little libraries are great. The bus stop with the bench is a perfect public location. We usually drop off children’s books. We have one on the dining room table ready to go. I cannot remember where or when I saw the first one of these. There are quite a few now. Wonder who started them.

  3. I was recently in San Antonio,TX. These little libraries are everywhere. None of them were as formal as the one pictured.

  4. What a perfect place for a LFL. I absolutely love this library concept. The founder, Todd Bol (since deceased), donated a LFL to my hometown in rural southwestern Minnesota in 2012. He traveled hundreds of miles with his wife to install it himself. I met him there, along with local community leaders, for this momentous event in a community without a library.

    Here’s my original post about that happy occasion:

    Thank you, Ruth, for appreciating LFLs as much as I do. The installation of the mini library in my hometown prompted the Vesta Community Cafe to place shelves inside for more books.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
