Our Little Free Adventure

Us older girls and Mom were running errands Friday last week. Dinner time was fast approaching and with it the need to be home to prepare it for the others. After getting lost in a random neighborhood (who knew that if you followed the verbal directions backward, you’d end up in an entirely different place than you planned??πŸ˜‚), we finally spotted our target beside a quiet, green park…

AΒ Little Free Library!!!

Dad had told us about one he’d seen nearby, and when Kate decided to donate a few of her collection of books, we set out to pass them on to other readers in this epic way!

Mom pulled up to the curb, and Kate and I jumped out to add her stack of books to the shelves of free deliciousness. It was so scrambled inside that we took a few minutes to organize the books by target age-group and make it pretty…

It was neat to recognize some of the titles inside! And also hear Kate’s crazy expansive knowledge of books as she helped me identify which were YA vs Adult or Children’s books and move them to the different shelves. Kudos to Mom and Aimee for patiently waiting for us that whole time while we played with a box of books!!! XD

Aren’t Little Free Libraries so cool??! The idea of trading books with fellow literature-loving strangers is intriguing to me! My brain instantly comes up with cute stories that could center around people anonymously trading books… πŸ˜› ❀

Have you ever seen/used a Little Free Library (or some similar book-swap ) before?

P.S. This week has been one huge, amazing, busy time for me, and i’ll hopefully tell y’all about it soon! tho i’m not good with words when i especially love something…

    1. Aw I getcha! Sometime I want to buy books at a thrift store specifically for putting in a Little Free Library, that way I don’t have to say goodbye to any of my collection. πŸ˜‰ Ooh and wouldn’t it be so fun to put a note in the front of a book saying what you liked about it and then asking the next reader to do the same when they pass it on??! ❀

      Thank you bunches for taking the time to comment, Jana!

    1. Right?!! I hadn’t either until we found one by the pond at the same park PE is at.
      This one is much bigger and it was great how many books we could pack into it! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      Hmmm it would be super cool to put a signed copy of a GenRising book in one and see if anyone took it to read…

  2. That is so cool! I think we have a few around town, but I’ve never checked them out. I will have to do that sometime though πŸ˜€ They are smaller than the one you guys found so they may not have a ton of options.

  3. So cool, Anna! That is a full free library (the ones I’ve seen are not even half that many… 😭) I’ve looked into a few before, but I’ve never seen any books that caught my attention.

    1. Aw yeah, this one was wonderfully packed with interesting looking books, both fiction and nonfiction! I’ve always thought it would be neat to ‘sponsor’ a little free library by making sure it was always full of great classics and masterful Christian books that I think everyone should read. πŸ˜‰

      Thanks so much for commenting, Emma!

  4. Little free library’s are sooo cool! There was one along a route that my family and I always go yard sailing on in the summer and I need to have us stop there one day. Ooohhh. Now I have a reason to keep that Bethany House ARC I didn’t love πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    Can’t wait to here about your week. 😁
