Do you have a "Little Free Library"?

What is a Little Free Library? It's 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 back another book to share. More info at the "Little Free Library” website. Do you have a photo of your Little Free Library to share? Email it to Connie Kirwin.
