I love everything about libraries. From the smell of old books and the checking out/borrowing process, to strolling through the aisles and aisles of wonderful information and magical stories. Books are my kind of my favorite. The other day, my family stumbled on this amazing Little Free Library that is located in midtown Tulsa, and it’s such a fun idea! We always keep a book or two in the car, to keep from hearing, “I’m so bored…” so, this worked perfectly… I may or may not have started dreaming of putting one closer to South Tulsa.
For those who aren’t familiar with the concept, according to the Little Free Library website, the LFL, is a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring another book to share. How fun is that?
TIP: The books in the LFL were all pretty nice and mostly hardback. You don’t necessarily need to spend a lot of money on a book to give, just a regular book that you have lying around and are willing to part with.
