What is a Little Free Library?
Unique little boxes where people in the community can take-a-book or leave-a-book, the Little Free Libraries are popping up all over the Upstate. Often set up by individuals who want to share their love of reading with neighbors, like our very own Kidding Around Contributor Jennifer!
There are well over 85,000 registered Little Free Libraries worldwide. This is pretty amazing considering how short a time this concept has been around.
In 2009, as a memorial to his mother, Todd Bol of Wisconsin built a little schoolhouse shaped box. He filled it with books and placed it atop a post in his front yard. The reaction was so great in his community; he began building more and giving them away to people.
As word spread and more people started creating their own libraries, it caught philanthropist Andrew Carnegie’s attention. Inspired, he wanted to fund the creation of additional 2,508 libraries. He was successful, and in partnership with the original creator, they funded over 5,000 in half the time they had hoped it would take.
In Spartanburg, we are fortunate that so many individuals have been inspired by this project and created a Little Free Library to share with our community.
