Little Free Library
Little Free Library is a neighborhood book exchange project begun in 2009 by Rick Brooks and Todd Bol of Hudson, Wisconsin. Participants build a small box similar to a mailbox, stock it with books, and register it online to receive a "charter." It becomes a place where people can take and return books for free, meeting their neighbors in the process. There are now three book exchange stations in Charlottesville.
