Sharing books makes me happy

Ok, my little library has been up and running for less than 24 hours, and I’ve already had a dozen people borrowing books, including several who knocked on my door to say thank you.  It helps that I’m on the walk/bike route to the grocery store.  I’ve even had neighbors ask if they can trade or contribute!  Sharing books makes me happy.  I hope you’ll consider starting your own neighborhood library today.

Sheryl’s min-library up and running

So, it’s finally done, or at least I hope it is!  My mini-library!  Hurray!

I set it up today, and have put 55 books in.  I know it isn’t a lot, but I have included a taste of everything from board books, to picture books to, early readers, intermediate fiction (and one non-fiction), young adult fiction and fiction and non-fiction for adults.  I even added a few of my own books.  Hey, why not!

Unfortunately, I couldn’t bolt my little library to my fence as no one would ever notice it, so I found a metal shelf to put it on and I have braced it with rocks. A windstorm has come up, so I’ll be able to test it out. I sure hope it works.  A report of how things go will follow soon.
