Acts of kind­ness

(be­cause car­ing is shar­ing)

In the Moment - - Good News -

There’s noth­ing bet­ter than nish­ing a truly good book and be­ing so ex­cited to share it with any­one and ev­ery­one. Try think­ing big­ger than your friends and fam­ily next time – nd your lo­cal Lit­tle Free Li­brary.

A whop­ping 61% of low-in­come fam­i­lies don’t have ac­cess to books at home and so the Lit­tle Free Li­brary, a not-for-pro t or­gan­i­sa­tion, is tack­ling the prob­lem head-on by set­ting up book swaps in com­mu­ni­ties across the globe.

The premise is sim­ple: take a book to one of their lit­tle wooden li­braries and leave with a new one. Through this small act, mil­lions of books are ex­changed each year, shar­ing a love of read­ing, pro­vid­ing re­sources to those who can’t af­ford them and bring­ing com­mu­ni­ties to­gether.

There are over 50,000 li­braries in over 70 coun­tries, so nd your near­est one (or set up your own!) us­ing the on­line map and take that lat­est read along. You never know, you might come away with your next fave ction. For more in­for­ma­tion go to www.lit­tle­freel­i­brary.org
