Little Libraries Pop Up in Waunakee
Little libraries foster literacy, neighborhoods. (Waunakee Tribune, 10/26/2011)
Excerpt: While many read books, magazines and periodicals on their digital devices, others are celebrating printed, bound copies and sharing them with their neighbors.
Little Free Libraries are popping up in Waunakee, with two so far in the downtown historic district and a possible third planned in Southbridge.
Similar to large birdhouses, the wooden shelters outside of two homes harbor titles for children and adults to borrow or take for their own. Neighbors are also welcome to drop off books they'd like to share with fellow residents.
"Take a book leave a book" at the little library. (8/13/2011)
