This is about our Little Free Library in Freeland, Oxfordshire, UK. This community project was grant aided by West Oxfordshire District Council.
From time to time I contact publishers, telling them about the Little Free Library and asking if they would consider donating a few books. In October, we received donations from Fircone Books, and this month Wordsworth Editions very generously donated a box of 20 books. Wordsworth Editions specialise in publishing new editions of classics, and the books they sent us included new copies of the following:
They also very kindly sent some children’s classics:
All the books that we usually provide in the Little Free Library are used books, donated by members of our community, so it is wonderful to occasionally offer new books, thanks to the generosity of publishers like Wordsworth Editions. These new books will be going into the Little Free Library at the beginning of May, allowing plenty of time for me to spread the word in the community via our village magazine, Facebook page, Twitter account and this blog!
Many thanks once again to Wordsworth Editions, for their generous donation of these beautiful classics.
