As you walk through the neighborhood, take time to stop by. The Ellers at 514 Staats are excited to be stewards for Little Free Library #6788.
And choose a friend for the journey.
The way it works is simple: We've stocked a variety of books we hope will be of interest. There are some reference books, classic fiction, children's fiction, and light reading. Stop by and take whatever catches your fancy. Come back and bring books to contribute.
Or leave a book for someone else to discover.
*Little Free Library is a movement started by Todd Bol of Hudson and Rick Brooks of Madison in 2010 and has grown to include little libraries in most states and dozens of countries. Little Free Library's mission is to promote literacy and the love of reading, foster a sense of community and connection, and build more than 2510 libraries around the world (the number of "real" libraries built by Andrew Carnegie).
