Nothing chills me out after a stressful day like a book. Happily, I've been making time to read. I finished Lavondyss, and am following it up with Ghosts in the Yew. ...Call it a fantasy kick. I'd love to share these titles with other geeks, and pick up some new-to-me books. Sadly, the Science Fiction Outreach Project comes but once a year.
Enter the Little Free Library.
Anyone can join the Little Free Library Movement by building, registering, and stocking a box for their community. Passers-by can take books, read 'em, bring 'em back, and add titles to the collection. It's free! There are pre-made models to build, but the movement encourages creativity. Check out some of these beauties.
Currently, Chicago has only 3 Little Libraries:
1245 W. Fullerton Ave.- Starbuck's
1250 S. Michigan Ave.
2641 S. Calumet - Young Women's Leadership Center
...and 4 more in the suburbs. NOT. ENOUGH.
I'm seriously considering making one, and stocking it with sci-fi and fantasy. The idea in my head may or may not be TARDIS-shaped. ;)
If Geek Girl Chicago built a Little Library, where could it live? Would you donate books? Please leave feedback below!
