Many months ago, the little free library I used to use regularly just disappeared! Well, it got blown over in a storm. It was also in the front yard of a house that was recently sold. The new owner didn’t seem to want it there. Oh well.
Today, on my drive from the gym to work, I saw that there is a new one, a block away. I told my co-worker about it and she told me where another one is. I’ll have to find that one later.
I stopped at the one I’d seen on the way to work. I grabbed two books from the giveaway bag of books that’s been in my backseat for months. I put them in the library and checked to see what was there. All children’s books. Well, I hope that changes soon.
I hope that the other one isn’t just children’s. I hope that the one on the way home from work eventually has more books for the older crowd, too.
When the most convenient little free library to me blew over in a storm, it wasn’t replaced. I keep thinking of starting one, but there is not anywhere to secure it in front of the house. There’s no lawn or dirt. Just cement. I read the above linked article, but it gives me no solutions for my particular issue. Maybe it could help someone else?
This bookstore in Baltimore, (free bookstore), looks amazing! I do wonder how they stay in business, pay their rent and employees, etc, since they don’t charge for the books. The person who sent me the article called it a big free library.
You can drop off donations, too. That’s where I have trouble here. The Little Free Library that was convenient to me was destroyed in a storm, and the house where it lived was sold and it seems that the new owner doesn’t want it there. I am driving books around in my car, trying to get to another Little Free Library. There’s one near school, but they are doing construction on the road, and I can’t park in front of it yet. I’ll find a place to put these books soon, I hope.
I drove by the house where the most convenient to me little free library lives. They’ve been doing construction on the house for a few months now. I don’t know what the story is behind it, but the tarps are up still.
We have had a storm during the last week, too. It’s been windy and rainy.
Yesterday, the library was gone! The post that held it up was still there, but the library box wasn’t. I will have to check next week on its condition. I am hoping that the wind just blew it over and not that it’s permanently gone. I used it a lot.
