Sharing is caring!

If you love books, you may not have to look far for a corner of books without heading to the nearest public library. Chances are, you have a ground-up community library near you stocked with curated reads and other items!

Ground-up community libraries have been set-up in the heartlands with its owners eager to share the joy of reading. Mummy Yvonne from @followingjoy, for instance, even displays little critters for visitors to observe or to bring home at her Little Library.

We love how community-minded the librarians are! Setting up corners near people’s homes are a sure way to grow that love for reading and sharing.
