Book Pusher

I’ll admit I have a second love in life after photography. A love that both fulfills and fuels my wanderlust. A love so deep and a desire so great that I have it tattooed on my shoulder. A young love that brought me ridicule. And a love that often keeps me from sleep at night. A love so great I am sharing it with the world on a street corner.

I opened a Little Free Library

Given my long, long love affair with reading and books, I was in love with the idea of the Little Free Library movement from the moment I learned about it. It is ridiculously simple in concept – a box full of books where anyone can stop by and take a book and then bring another back to share. This simple but effective idea is just the kind of thing that makes me so happy when we come across it while traveling. And this one in particular encourages reading and community, the sharing of ideas and learning, and recycling. PERFECT!

 

Little Free Library

So I hope if you are near Columbus Park you will stop at our Little Free Library. It is open 24 hours a day rain or shine and has a constantly rotating selection of titles. It is so fun seeing what gets picked out and what gets contributed!

 

FYI: The library is made entirely of scraps from the studio. Can you guess what they are?

    I love this! Dave’s parents have a “book shack” at their trash/recycling center up in New York State. You can pick up or drop off books any time. Is there a website with suggestions or is this just a grass roots type thing.

      Thanks! The Little Free Library link in the post takes you to the organization. There are tips on building and a map of library locations.
