Little Free Library, Day 3

Two books were taken today:  If You're Reading This, It's Too Late (Pseudonymous Bosch) and Frankenstein (Mary Shelley).

People left these today:  How the Tiny People Grew Tall, a hardcover picture book by Nancy Wood & Rebecca Walsh; In a Dark, Dark Room and Other Scary Stories, an I Can Read book by Alvin Schwartz & Dirk Zimmer; a big, fun book – one of those with lots of flaps and envelopes and such -- called Ghost Files:  The Haunting Truth; The War of the Flowers, a fantasy novel by Tad Williams; and the four Amulet graphic novels by Kazu Kibuishi!

And later, If You're Reading This, It's Too Late was returned.  (I wonder if these quick returns are taken by parents, and returned when their child says, "I'm not interested in that," or, "I've already read that.")

~ I found notes in two of the books that were left.
~ I talked to two more neighbors and a few people I saw passing by, encouraging them to use the Library.
~ I posted a quote in the window of the Library, the same one I recently posted on the sidebar of my blog:  "The beginning is always today." -Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
~ I made a welcome note, telling how to use the Library, and put some copies of it inside. (See photo above.)

It's fun to host a busy Little Free Library!  I'll update more at the end of the week.

I have seen this idea before, but only a picture--never an "update." Very awesome! I'm going to adapt this for my classroom.

I should think that watching all the comings and goings might just be better than the internets! Yay!

It looks great. I hope you'll keep letting us know how it's doing.
