•    24 Days of Sprinkles – Day 22 – The Lanzi’s Little Free Library   

    “Take a bookLittle Free Library, return a book,” is a small portion of what the Little Free Library is all about. It’s fun, free, and downright adorable with its vintage, yet classically rugged appeal. Sharing books is a treasure that passes the test of time – reading never gets old and as the reader ages, her reading list evolves with her. The Lanzi family’s Little Free Library is perched atop a beautiful stone wall on the corner of Leith and St. Paul St in downtown Brighton.

    The Lanzi’s created their Little Free Library to promote literary, a sense of community and a shared passion for books in adults and children. The Little Free Library network is a non-profit organization that is expanding into Asia, Latin America, Africa, as well as cities large and small across the United States – one little free library at a time.

    Taking a book, and leaving a book is just the beginning. Sharing a love of reading and supporting local “habitats for humanities” is part of the bigger picture behind the Little Free Library concept. Today we see God’s spirit of giving and sharing very much alive on the stone wall that proudly holds the Lanzi’s Little Free Library.

    Today as the eastern morning sun greets the corner of Leith Street, we may be found happily borrowing a few more books, and returning those we have had the privilege of sharing in.
