So You Want to Build a Little Free Library?

Little Free Libraries are, indeed, popping up all over. Since the first one in Hudson, Wisconsin, the simple, yet profound idea of sharing books via these little structures has spread across the U.S. and into Mexico, Canada, Germany, Ghana and the U.K. More are in the works in France, Afghanistan, Nepal, India and more. The Little Free Library goal is to build more libraries than Andrew Carnegie, who built 2,510.
