"Little Free Libraries" Popping Up Around Town

Posted by Amanda Hicks on Thursday, June 14th, 2018 at 1:15pm.

The "Little Free Library" project is a new trend that's becoming popular all over the world. The Little Free Library is a mailbox/birdhouse wooden box on a post where neighbors can "take a book, leave a book."

The Jerry Thomas Elementary School in Jupiter unveiled their first Little Library on their front lawn on June 1st. Kids were bouncing up and down in line to grab the books and the excitement was encouraging to the community. Now Jupiter plans to open eight more and one will even be a recreation of the Jupiter Lighthouse.

A woman in Royal Palm Beach put a Little Free Library in her own front yard, saying it's a cool idea and is planning on putting more in the community with her own money. She lives at 167 Sunflower Circle, and you'll find her little blue library with a sunflower painted on the side.

The Little Free Libraries are sold online and ship plain so you can paint/decorate it how you'd like. Simply register the box on the website once it's up so people can search for locations. There are currently 700,000 across the world currently.

Expect to see more of these popping up around town and maybe stop by one and see if there's a book your interested in or leave one of your own.
