Today we challenge you to put up a Little Free Library in your yard.
Little Free Libraries are great for creating community in your neighbourhood and inspiring joy and wonder in people both young and old. You can find out more about their amazing programs and how to become a steward here.
If you, like me, live in an apartment and the Little Free Library challenge isn’t viable, we challenge you to share a book you love instead. You could leave a copy in a coffee shop, on a park bench or bus seat, or give it to a friend directly.
Sharing a good book is an act of kindness. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that reading is good for our brains, combats mental decline, and reduces stress and anxiety. In this time of social isolation, reading can be a great source of joy and a wonderful escape.
