When we set up the Little Free Library in our village, we were unsure of what the reaction might be. In the United States, Little Free Libraries are a familiar concept, but here in the UK they are not as widely recognized. We had to explain how this kind of free book exchange works: we wrote articles in the village newsletter, contacted local media, and set up facebook and twitter accounts to help spread the word.
Our community has quickly embraced the Little Free Library; it is used everyday, with books being constantly taken and donated. In fact, we now have more books than when we started! This free book exchange is a big hit in our village, with both children and adults using it regularly.
