It is interesting that the first library pictured is a set of re-purposed beehive supers. Wonder why they stopped keeping bees! A way to reuse in more way than one..

Yesterday I was able to give a copy of a book written and signed by Russell Train to a Ph.d librarian who is becoming a Little Free Library steward in Hinsdale, Illinois, outside of Chicago. Train and his wife had self published a memoir about their travels, family and careers.

The book had appeared in a Little Library in Madison about a year ago. I knew that Train had been EPA administrator in the Nixon and Ford administrations but did not know of his equally impressive leadership at the World Wildlife Fund. It turns out that the recycle, repurpose and reuse approach to building these neighborhood book exchanges definitely inspires many more kinds of re-thinking and remembering as well.

We’re hoping to see a whole line of Little Free Libraries in the form of Aldo Leopold’s shack soon. Know anyone who would like to build one.

Thanks for writing about all this, by the way. Helps us all realize that little things can make a difference.
