Tiny Libraries Give Readers a New Way to “Read Locally”


Libraries have always been based on the idea of “reuse and recycle”, but a community in Wisconsin has taken the idea to a whole new level — a tiny one!  Now, more than 300 “Little Free Libraries” have popped up around the U.S. and even internationally, including locations as far away as Nepal.

For more information, or to find a tiny library near you, check out the Little Free Library website.
