Two weeks ago, while travelling along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia, USA, I came across a Little Free Library.
This one was located at the Peaks of Otter Lodge. I left one of my Backtracks books at the library. Since returning to Australia, I’ve looked up the Little Free Library, an American movement that started small in 2009 and now has over 40,000 little libraries around the world.
It is a great cause and, having surpassed their initial goal of building 2,510 Little Free Libraries, as many libraries as the Scottish-American businessman and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, they continue to promote literacy and the love of reading by helping people, and communities, build Little Free Libraries around the world.
