Last week we learned about the grass roots project Little Free Library sweeping the U.S. and now other countries and knew we had to join in.  Ellen, as the designated builder of our partnership, set out to construct one right away.  It was built, painted and hung outside our shop within a few days.
We're thrilled with the response.  Passersby now stop, some shyly, and sort through the reading choices.  We've already re-stocked our original book selections, as most were chosen within the first two days.  We've already had one generous donation of a dozen or more children's books and are waiting to see which loaned books come back and what other titles arrive.
