Little Free Library opens in Middlebury

MIDDLEBURY — The first Little Free Library in Middlebury is up and running at 91 Main Street. You can take a book or leave a book or just stop by to browse. You will find this “little book box” in front of Middlebury Eye Associates Inc. The library is always open. Little Free Libraries work on the honor system of free books for anyone who is interested. They are a community resource for everyone to enjoy.
Little Free Libraries are a network of book exchanges located in every state in the US and in over 70 countries around the world with over 50,000 in existence. The idea began in Hudson, Wisconsin when Todd Bol built his first library in 2009 and installed it in his front yard to honor his mother, a schoolteacher and lifelong reader. 
The idea grew and spread to become a non-profit organization with libraries located around the globe. Designed to share books and a love of reading, Little Free Libraries help foster community connection and creativity, helping neighbor meet neighbor, and building goodwill along the way.
More information can be found at littlefreelibrary.org. Check out the world map to find the first Little Free Library in Middlebury, and look for them wherever you travel. Finding good books couldn’t be easier or more affordable, they’re free. If inspired, you may want to start a Little Free Library on your street.
