In the town where I live,
a Little Free Library was just mounted on a white fence in front of a local business, won't say which business it was. It's the first Little Free Library I've ever seen, I was unaware of them before. Also the first in this town.

These little constructions have been around for several years; often they turn up in front of residences, rather than commercial areas.

Any Mudcatters here have experience with Little Free Libraries?

There's one in the street in Hebden Bridge (Yorkshire, England).

Lots of free book shelves in pubs in and around Edinburgh.

I see them all over here in Northern California. There's even one in the lobby of our local county Probation Department (we have a very enlightened Chief Probation Officer). Wikipedia has an article about the history of the Little Free Library, and the organization behind the libraries has a Website, https://littlefreelibrary.org/.

But all is not happiness and joy in the land of Little Free Libraries. There's an article in The Atlantic (click) that tells how certain communities have prohibited them.

I like 'em.

Where Lady Hillary and I live, we have condonazis who go about complaining about anything that is not by the letter of the law. I cannot even varnish the spars of my sailing rig in my garage without a complaint and a fine.

we have lots of them in Australia - I pass a few in my regular travels around my usual haunts & they are cute

As I'm a member of 2 council (municipal) public libraries & usually have 10 to 15 books from each one at the same time, I really don't need any more books to read - maybe ...

They are a great use for redundant (UK) telephone boxes, which would be removed otherwise. Saw one the other day.

We have the Black Book cafe here. The deal is you offer what you think the book is worth - or you swap a book. Which apart from the first swapper, all the other books are totally free. I believe there is a similar cafe in Cambridge started by the same people.
