Little Free Libraries
gaining in popularity
ST. JOHNSBURY — No library cards are needed for the Little Free Library in St. Johnsbury, the latest one in Vermont — just another book to replace the one you’re taking out to read.
The Caledonian Record reported that Little Free Libraries are a trend in which people create storage spaces for books, generally designed as miniature houses. Some are as large as an old telephone booth.
The libraries are close to the road. Passers-by are encouraged to borrow, take or add books.
In St. Johnsbury, Tracey and James Herold opened their library outside of their house Sunday. Tracey Herold said she got the idea after visiting her daughter in Minneapolis, where she saw five or six.
James Herold designed theirs to be a replica of their home.MORE IN Vermont News
