When driving around your neighborhood, there is a good chance you've seen what looks like a small house or box full of books and wondered what the story is with it. What you're seeing is a 'Little Free Library' and it's exactly what is seems.

The program began back in 2009 in Wisconsin and soon spread the joy of reading all over the United States and the world. There are more than 100,000 Little Free Libraries all around the world and in all 50 states. On average 42 million books are shared through the program each year. As a matter of fact, there are dozens all around the state of Wyoming. The interactive map on Little Free Library website lets you learn about the LFL in your neighborhood.
