Chautauqua’s Little Free Library

20 Jun

Walking down Wythe Avenue at the Chautauqua Institution,  I spotted this:

According to the Little Free Library website:

“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. You can, too!”

What a great way to promote reading and community! I noticed a copy of Umberto Eco‘s The Name of the Rose, I envy the person who picks it up for the first time.

 

Here is a video about the project:
