The other day I posted a photo of a library to represent a modern-day relic for this week’s photo challenge. I took the shot in Cuba (click here to view). Internet access is rather limited and sporadic there, which may explain why the library was humming. However, there may still be hope for the rest of us, thanks to the little-free-library movement. People across the globe are hosting ‘pop-up libraries’ on their front lawns. This project combines traditional bricks and mortar with social media. I stumbled upon the little free library pictured here completely by accident, when I decided to take a different route home last week. Such a nice surprise. Coincidentally, the author of this week’s writing challenge has also posted a pic of a free lending library in NYC, so the movement must be taking off. Happy reading!
