The Mighty Fine book Swap.

I have been driving past this cute little cabinet on a busy road in Chelmer for months now and recently decided to pull over and investigate .  Its full of books and this notice.

I think it’s a wonderful idea!  You can find out  more about it here!

Have you seen anything like this in where you live?

  1. I’ve never seen one in person, but I’ve read about them. Great idea! I’m afraid people would just eat the books in my neighborhood! 🙂

    It’s a cute idea, although where I am, that wouldn’t last for a minute outside. The very ground would be dug up and stolen.

    • I have just read your post and was ‘blown away’ wow!!! I want to move to your neighbourhood now!!!!!!.
      I didn’t have time to borrow a book but will have to make time to do it.

  3. There are several of these in my neighborhood, though they are all much smaller than this one. They are precious! I have thought a few times about how they could be stolen, but in truth most Americans just aren’t interested enough in reading to put in the effort, ha! Fill that thing with iPods and you’d have another story.

    • In the next suburb along to this one there is a house with a permanent little stand/stall with a roof that has a stuff saying ‘free stuff’. Its always got stuff on it and the items are always different every time I go past. Another great idea.

  4. In the US, where I live, we have “Little Free Libraries.” People build them outside their houses or small institutions (churches, little shops) and put books in or take them out. With very few exceptions (a woman taking children’s books for her day care, eg., a village board deciding they were a zoning violation – which did not go over well with the rest of the village citizenry) it seems to work pretty well.
