“I cannot recommend highly enough what fun it is being a new Little Free Library steward! I’ve met lots of neighbors, and my favorite thing so far is overhearing a young girl on her bike tell her friend, ‘See, there’s that little red library. I love getting books there!'” – Steward Diane H.
“They say this in the Little Free Library book, and it’s true. I’ve talked to more neighbors in the past 2 weeks than I have in the past 10 years! What a totally positive thing!”
– Mike Cornell, Steward of Library #26303
