Tiny House Libraries – The Little Free Library Initiative

The Little Free Library organisation is all about sharing books within your community. These tiny house libraries originate from Madison, Wisconsin, USA and are now dotted around the USA (see map).

They come in a variety of styles and costs to suit all budgets, but really, anyone may set up a small box, making it weatherproof if it is outside, fill it with a few books to share, then tell friends and neighbours . . . like the ‘Pay It Forward’ concept. People may take a book and exchange it for another.

What an excellent scheme to encourage reading.
