New Use for Little Libraries

A Little Free Library is seen in Colorado Springs, Colorado. (Wikimedia Commons/Library of Congress/Carol M. Highsmith)

In addition to books, in this time when all our public libraries are closed for the indefinite future, some of our neighborhood Little Libraries are being stocked by their owners with free food for the local homeless and indigent.

I just took down bags of dry pinto beans and rice, which I exchanged for a copy of Thomas Pynchon’s “Bleeding Edge.”

  3. Good idea…but may need a bigger “little library.’
