My family spotted this library along the Terry Hershey Hike & Bike Trail in Houston Texas.
My family moved to Houston, Texas, USA in 2020. Not the easiest move due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But there is always a light that makes a new place feel like home, no matter where we move. The little lending libraries we happened upon when we explored Buffalo Bayou Park is one of those places.
Not only were we happy to find a lending library, but I was overjoyed to see the little library was a part of a bigger project called the Little Free Library, a book sharing movement. The movement is via a nonprofit organization focused on inspiring the love of reading and building communities.
With the Coronavirus outbreak still rolling, some of the little libraries we have seen have transitioned into a sharing box for essential needs. Regardless of whether there are books, seeds, or canned goods, to me, the libraries continue to be a beacon of the strength and support of community during these trying times.
