Setup Little Free Libraries – Community driven libraries – in every street

Do you have books at you home?

Do you donate books to local library?

Do you sell your old books to old book shop?

Do you want to read books for free?

Does your govt library has only very old books?

Here is the concept of “Little Free Library”.

It is the community driven Library. Why should govt or private only run the libraries?

The concept is simple.

It’s a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share. You can, too!

see this 2 min video about it –

As any one can take any book or give any book, every time you goto the Little Free Library, you will new set of books to explore.

There are more than 25,000 Little Free Libraries around the globe registered with the site and they are still growing,

Even we can set it in our streets and start sharing a local community of readers.
