I used to own four floor-to-ceiling bookcases full of books.
Now I don’t.
Now I keep about 20 volumes inside our home, most of which are reference books, that I dip into over and over.
The rest are gone, and I don’t miss them. The floor-to-ceiling bookshelves are gone, and the time dusting them is gone too!
Our Lilliput Library, by our front gate, has made sharing away our books so much easier.
I put books I’m done with into the library. Passers-by are free to take them, for good or on loan.
They also add books of their own to what has now become a community collection, read and enjoyed by many.
Anyone can have a Lilliput Library at their gate. You can build one yourself or, like us, obtain one from a community that builds them locally from donated materials.
Books are meant to be read and enjoyed, not hoarded on a shelf.
Share your library, share your knowledge.
Be free of the burden of ownership, and take one small step towards making our world a community again.
