The Little Free Library Movement Gains Momentum

Little Free Libraries are popping up in towns and cities across America. Often built and assembled or sponsored by local book lovers, the mini-library offers patrons to take a free book in exchange for putting another one back on the shelf. No library card is required. So far, there have been no reports of anyone trying to abuse the library boxes.

This "Little Free Library" pre-dates today's models by about 80 years. This is from London during the 1930s.
