“A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading.”
Williams, a librarian with the Spokane County Public Library system, is one of several Spokane-area residents who keep these sharing libraries in their front yards. The premise is simple: take a book or leave a book. "Always a gift, never for sale," goes the motto of Little Free Library, the nonprofit organization that maintains maps and encourages the installation of these mini book depots around the world.
