Your mission is to promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges world wide.

And to build a sense of community as we share skills, creatively and wisdom across generations.

There are five little libraries in Victoria and one in WA Australia.

There are 167 Little Libraries in California included Cotati, Nevada City and Grass Valley.

Tell us about curating the books that reside in a little Library. How is this more and better than a drop off, pick up kind of affair.

Tell us about the concept for Little Free Library

What inspired you to do this?

Do you ever run out of books?

Tell us some interesting stories about the Little Libraries, how does a little library connect the community?

Do you have restrictions on how a library should look? Can we build a little Castle library? A little tower library?

Tell us about the typical Steward of a library.

    Great podcast Catharine and Damien.

    This episode led me to check out the Little Free Library site and when I told my niece about the initiative, she said “Oh! I think there’s one of those at the nearby park! I saw kids reading around this little box and wondered what they were doing.”

    I told her what it was and why it was there and she thought that was pretty neat. I am thinking of building one for my front lawn, or even attaching it to my tree in my front yard, but alas there are other home projects to complete first!

    Thanks again for a great episode that I enjoy on my long commutes.
    Take care,
