Todd made more of the little book houses for others, with no thought at the time of going further. But later on, he and community activist, Rick Brooks, decided that this concept could be used to build literacy and strengthen neighborhoods. The Little Free Library movement was born.
Today there are at least 10,000 Little Free Libraries around the world. If you go to the Little Free Library website here, you can buy a ready-made Little Free Library for your neighborhood in styles from an Amish Barn, to a Scandinavian Cottage to a British Phone Booth.
Or you could build your own Little Free Library for your neighborhood. The LFL website gives you some advice on how to go about making your Little Free Library successful. Register your Little Free Library on the website and it'll be added to the organization's world map of LFL sites.
