Little Free Library movement comes to Canberra

Two ‘Little Free Libraries’, also known as ‘community book exchanges’, have recently opened in Canberra, reports ABC News Canberra.

John Lovering, a former employee of the National Library of Australia, has built a library containing 20 books outside his home in Curtin. A second library has been placed anonymously alongside a bike path in O’Connor.

The Little Free Library movement began in the US in 2009. At the beginning of 2015 the total number of registered Little Free Libraries around the world was estimated to be nearly 25,000.
