Micro Crowdourced Libraries

“The premise of Little Free Library is take-a-book, return-a-book,” explains Ian Veidenheimer of The Architectural League of New York, who helped coordinate the project to bring these tiny libraries to New York. When the project has deployed in other cities, the books are usually guarded by a small “book shelter” in the shape of a bird house, but in New York they gave it a more design-centric treatment.

More cities feature these cleverly designed micro stations where people share books in unexpected urban venues like in community gardens and parks.
