Photo Friday: Lit-Up Little Free Library

I know the Christmas season is technically over, but my son likes to leave the decorations up until his mid-January birthday, so we’re still celebrating here. And I realize I haven’t used my blog to show off my newly illuminated Little Free Library!

Are you familiar with Little Free Libraries? There are more than 90,000 of these little book boxes registered with the Little Free Library nonprofit, and more than 100 of them are right here in Alexandria, Virginia. Passersby are encouraged to stop at the Little Free Library and either donate a book or two, or take some. Or both. I’m happy to have my LFL’s patrons read a book and then keep it, give it to a friend, donate it to charity, or return it to mine or any other Little Free Library.

Just in time for the 2019 holiday season, we had an electrician bring a line out from the house so we could plug in and light up the Little Free Library. The lights might not remain all year around, but in any season, the library is always filled with plenty of books! My Little Free Library, #9136, was chartered more than six years ago at my old house, about four blocks away from here. We reinstalled it at our new house when we moved here in 2019.
