TINY WOODEN BUILDINGS ACROSS TORONTO BRING NEIGHBOURS TOGETHER

They’re found in more than 30 countries, and we have them too.  Little Free Libraries are decorative wooden boxes about the size of a large birdcage mounted on poles, filled with books free for borrowing, open 24/7.  The idea germinated in WISCONSIN 4 years ago, and TORONTO’s first Free Library appeared in the Beach neighbourhood in 2011, thanks to 80-year-old Bill Wrigley. <PHOTOS – above>

There’s a website, complete with plans for building a Little Library of your own –  http://www.littlefreelibrary.org
