The Little Free Library in Harrison Hot Springs

Have you heard of Little Free Libraries?  You will notice them popping up in communities everywhere.  The concept is simple – take a book – return a book.  Often the simplest ideas are the best and Little Free Libraries embody the spirit of community, sharing and a love of literature.

Unique and Quirky Designs

The Little Free Libraries are quite charming – their designs are all unique and often quirky, many resembling bird houses.  You will stumble upon these Little Libraries at beaches, in front of private homes, at bus stops, store fronts, on bike paths and trails in neighbourhoods everywhere from the United State to Ghana and Afghanistan.  They are a unique and creative blend of literacy promotion and community engagement.

 Obviously reading is popular throughout the year, but there is something special about finding that perfect summer book while vacationing.  When I say “summer book”, I mean that low-brow, lightweight page turning novel you have wanted to read all year!  For many of us there is a kind of self-indulgent pleasure in leaving those deep, serious books for our winter reading lists and allowing time to indulge in that “trashy” summer novel.  In this digital age, there is still great pleasure to be found on your lawn chair by the pool with a really good book….enjoy your read.
