Little Free Library

Little Free Library
Lander, WY
July 2014
Several years ago I read an article about the Little Libraries, but until last week, I had never seen one.

Heading home from the Lander Medical Clinic,  I was surprised to find this library on the east side of Buena Vista Drive.  It stands under a large pine tree between two houses.


The little box actually held more books than I thought was possible: inside was a nice variety of adult, children, and teen books. The slips of paper have notes of appreciation to the family that sponsors the Little Free Library.

The Little Free Library project is world-wide. Want to find a Little Library in your area? Use this map.

Have you seen or used any Little Free Libraries in your area?

  1. I never heard of this before. I checked the map and there aren't any in our area. Sounds like fun, but since I live a block from the library, I don't think I will put one up.

  3. What a great post!!!! I didn't know there were so many by me. I will probably head over to the one on Lakemont Ave. this afternoon. :-)

    I saw the one in Dunedin, Florida when we were there on vacation. Such a great idea. I'm glad there are ones close to me.

  6. I've never seen one in our area but I checked the map and found one about 15 minutes away from us. Great idea, and one that I would like to support!

  7. I've seen one in my mom's area, but hadn't seen one in mine. I checked the map, though, and there is one!

  8. This is a great idea especially for those in rural areas or those that need to go long distances to the library. Does anyone know if the Bookmobile still exists? I remember as a kid I couldn'n't wait for it to come.

  9. Isn't that a great idea? And such a cute little house! I had not heard of this movement, but I see it has caught on all around the country. Wow. That's cool.

  10. I love it! I recently saw an article about a young fellow who had to remove his because he lacked some license someone thought he should have for such. That made me cranky!
