Have you seen the Little Free Library that is shaped like a space rocket at the park opposite the Macleod shopping centre? Isabella in 6Z and Mia in 3JC at our school help to look after the library on behalf of the Macleod shopkeepers and they are doing a great job!
The Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone can stop and pick up a book to read. When you finish reading the book you can return it for others to read or donate one of your own books. You don’t need to be a member or even need a library card! The idea is to “Take a book, return a book”
The Little Free Libraries first began in Wisconsin in the USA in 2009 and there are now more than 25,000 Little Free Libraries around the world. The libraries can be in public spaces or in people’s front yards (You might like to put one in your family’s front yard!).
I wonder if we might be able to set up a Little Free Library at the front of our school…what do you think? Leave your suggestions or ideas in the comment section…
