Over the past year or so, several Little Free Libraries have popped up in North Augusta. Since we live downtown, we decided to venture out and give three of them a visit. If you've never heard of a Little Free Library, it's a neighborhood library system designed for people to take a book and return a book. It's entirely free and based on the honor system. Before we left home, I grabbed three duplicate books from our bookshelf so that we could share a little love with the libraries. I chose Night by Elie Wiesel, Lord of the Flies by William Golding, and The Dharma Bums by Jack Kerouac to trade. While I didn't find a book to add to our collection at every library, I did pull The Twits by Roald Dahl from the shelf of one. I've been on a bit of a Roald Dahl kick this year, as I never read his stories as a child. So far this year I've read Fantastic Mr. Fox, Matilda, The BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We'll be stopping back by the Litttle Free Libraries in North Augusta more often to see what titles pass through!
