Traveling is one thing and staying a zillion miles away from home another. The latter made me cranky for my first few months in the US and I ended up writing a grumpy post on how things are so irritating here. Well, I am an optimistic person so I kept looking for experiences to intrigue me and I think its time to share one of those.
A new place always surprises you with serendipitous experiences, something we all seek. Since I like walking a lot anywhere I go I came across “The Little Library”, or many of those across different streets in Cincinnati.
These little libraries stand adorably and house donated books which you can take back home to read. You can either return the book after reading or replace it with one of your books.
And though there are libraries in most of the neighborhoods, these Little Libraries can be so convenient for travelers and locals alike.
What really elates me is that these libraries are always full of books, which means people really wish to preserve and don’t disappear with the books.
Being so invested in community development is completely ingrained in the culture here. While researching a bit about these teeny gems, I came across their webpage where you can get all details about how these libraries were started and where all you can find the little library.
Let me know in the comments section if you have found these nearby!
