Community project allows people to share books for free

Little Free Libraries in Baltimore

Take a book, leave a book.  That's the idea behind the Little Free Libraries network and it's coming to Baltimore.

The first one is opening today at the Abell Open Space on E. 32nd Street in Charles Village, according to the Village Learning Place.  The Little Free Libraries program allows children and adults to either take a book or leave a book for others to enjoy.

The Little Free Library in the Abell Open Space is located within a community garden at the Village Learning Place.  When the project is complete, there will be a total of five Little Free Libraries throughout Charles Village.

This movement started in Minnesota in 2009.  According to the Little Free Libraries website, there are more than 2,600 networks in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
