I truly believe that people's lives are enriched through reading and I want to encourage all people to read, especially young children.
Books can be expensive and that can often dissuade someone from even picking one up. When there are opportunities for people to do something for free, they are more inclined to take advantage of it but even as an avid reader, I still find it hard to make it to the local library. Even if I do go to the library, I have to make sure I return before the book I check out is due.
There are so many books in this world that people buy and may never pick up again. Why not exchange books for one you haven't read and let someone else take advantage of the book you leave?
Plus, how cute are these little libraries?? If nothing else, they add a ton of charm!!
Here is another site about a project called Books Without Borders. Definitely work perusing!
