Anita & Alfredo Malchiodi Albedi. Fairfield, CA. When I showed Alfredo the Little Free Library website, he said "You'll have one soon." Three weeks later, it was installed, complete with hand-carved sign and solar-powered lights for late-walking insomniacs needing a good book to "put them to sleep." There will be an effort to stock the library with some foreign language literature for the immigrants who often walk by in our neighborhood.

The Little Free Library - Todd Bol, an international development consultant - came up with this idea: The Little Free Library, a nonprofit that seeks to place small, accessible book exchange boxes in neighborhoods around the world. Users can purchase the boxes directly from LFL’s website, download plans to build their own or completely wing it. As of 2013 there are 6,000 LFLs across the planet.
