Exciting news this week.
First up, the Little Free Library has a new addition thanks to the lovely Julia at Defeat Despair. She belongs to Paper Back Swap, a site for exchanging books. She ordered a copy of the beloved children’s book Charlotte’s Web and asked them to ship it here instead.
The book arrived over the weekend with a flood of memories. My grade school teacher read it aloud to us after lunch each day, along with the other E.B. White classic, Stuart Little. Julia says:
I am excited about some family having access to this wonderful tale through your library. What a fun way to spread the joy of reading!
Thank you, Julia!
We’re on the Map
Our Little Free Library is on the official map. It’s now searchable directly from the LFL site. Here is a screen shot, complete with coordinates. What would the great explorers of the world think of that?
I can’t tell you how happy I am when I see people stop and browse the library. I surreptitiously watched twin girls pick out a book this weekend. Monday I saw a pair of pre-teen girls drop off a few books. What joy.
