I love Austin for all their Little Free Libraries. There’s the free books, but also the sense of community. Book lovers, sharing their stories with everyone. I brought five books to leave, and ended up taking three with me.

The little stool in front of this one shows how it’s for children’s books, mostly. As does the decorations on the inside–I love how Curious George is peeking out through the gaps.

And speaking of watching, this Little Free Library has a friend keeping an eye on it. This is definitely a non-judgmental tree.

This one looks like it grew out of the ground. I’m not sure if someone re-purposed a dead shrub or little tree, but it looks like it.

And this fairly standard two-shelf boxy number is where I left my last and favorite book that I brought with me, Hospital Station by James White. I hope someone finds it and loves it as much as I do!

Here’s the three titles that caught my eye:

Zombie Spaceship Wasteland; The Devil in the White City; and The Summer I Saved the World… in 65 Days.

    I really love this concept, and wish I knew where some of these might be in my area. I wonder if I can Google that? The creativity in the boxes is so much fun, and the idea of sharing is always cool. Speaking of that, thanks for sharing these photos with us. Maybe the thing to do is be the first one in my area to put one up. 😀
