The Pay-It-Forward Little Libraries

A library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never failing spring in the desert. — Andrew Carnegie

Good News of the Day:
Bigger than a breadbox, homier than a newspaper box and more surprising than a bookmobile, the Little Library is popping up all over town. On bike paths. Outside coffee shops. In the front yards of private homes. Stocked with books ranging from academic texts to children’s classics, music instruction and gardening magazines, each two-by-two-foot Little Library bears the same simple message: “Take a book. Leave a book.” The brainchild of Rick Brooks of Madison and Todd Bol of Hudson, the Little Library has found a home in more than 20 spots in Wisconsin since last summer and is spreading to communities in states from Minnesota to New York. In an era of laptop screens and eBooks, happening upon a Little Library can have its own special magic.
