WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Take a book leave a book, it’s as easy as that when you have a Little Free Library in your neighborhood. Now one is up and running in a Wilmington housing community to spark creativity through book exchanges.
The Little Free Library is a non-profit organization that inspires a love of reading. A reveal was held today in the Houston Moore community.
Betsy Kahn said she presented this idea about a year ago and now has turned into a reality. Kahn said this is an exciting day for her. She said her favorite thing about a Little Free Library is you never know what book you will take home or find.
“It’s a lot like the tide ebb and flow. What shells will the tide bring in? What shells will the tide take back out? Using that analogy for books is what it’s like. It’s been my experience with our Little Free Library at home,” Kahn said.
Dozens of community members came out for the reveal. A lot of kids at Houston Moore already started picking out books to read.
