When I was little our family visited our local public library every week. Dad was a big advocate of the library, having started going to the library on his own when he was six years old. Mom came to libraries late in life though supported us becoming readers. There wasn't a lot of books in our house that we owned so the neighbourhood library was our life line to learning and entertainment. I ended up working in public libraries for over 25 years and so creating and 'hosting' a Little Free Library is a good fit for me. 

Our family's Little Free Library, a global literacy initiative in our neighbourhood was set up in December 2017. I secretly dedicated it to my younger sister who was my first library customer. She loved books, reading and children. Since its inception, our neighbours and friends continue to stock  LFL #53502 with good books.  I occasionally put a call out on Facebook for more books - there can never be too many books for the little ones to enjoy. For more info, visit the official website to start your own Little Free Library..
