The Little Free Library Movement

There's an interesting article in the Wisconsin Badger Herald about the Little Free Library movement that seems to be picking up steam in and around Wisconsin.

One-room schoolhouses, log cabins, barns or anything else people think up. These are examples of the many creative Little Free Libraries people have made around the world, and many students have probably seen them around Madison.
