This Halloween instead of handing out candy for treats, we tried something a little different. We placed 100 books for young readers on a bench with a sign that said “Happy Halloween. This is our Free Little Library. Please choose a book that looks interesting.”
What happened was so wonderful. For three hours, we caught glimpses from our windows of so many children in costumes excitedly discovering the note and the books. We watched as they took the time to choose a book. Click on the link below to see one of the children choose a book. It was heartwarming!
All of the books we put out on the garden bench were taken to a new home. We can hardly wait to do the same next year!
