The Little Free Library is a non-profit organization which aims at inspiring netizens to build community by encouraging people to install book exchanges for their neighborhoods. It all started when Sharalee Armitage Howard decided that the stump of a 110-year-old tree close to her home would make the perfect Little Free Library. Well, instead of uprooting it, Sharalee decided to came up with this idea.
She said, “We had to remove a huge tree that was over 110 years old. So, I decided to turn it into a little free library which I’ve always wanted.”
She further told that anyone from the neighborhood can swap the book from the library. It provides easy access and a non-monetary way of enjoying reading. Sharalee also took it to Facebook where her library got approval by many netizens. She wrote, “OK, this project isn’t quite finished… But I can’t wait to share it. We had to remove a huge tree that was over 110 years old, so I decided to turn it into a little free library (which I’ve always wanted). Here it is (minus some cleanup, vegetation, and trim work)”
One of the users remarked, “Very cool and forward thinking, to raise up others with knowledge, a true gift.” This very remark tells us that the entire project is taken nicely.
The 110-yr old cottonwood tree is carved out from the inside, topped with a rood and installed with a cozy interior and exterior lighting. It gives extravagant fairytale look.
The Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization. It believes in the concept of encouraging and inspiring people, “To Take a bool and Share a book.” Its a place where anyone can donate, buy and share a book with them.
The place is a little special landmark that will help keep the magic of reading alive among the netizens.
