Several years ago, The Daily News ran an excellent article about a Little Free Library here in my neighborhood in La Marque.

I love these free little libraries. I check the one at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship almost every day and I've gotten some amazing books and left a few of my own.

Jamaica Beach has a Free Little Library at City Hall.
