You ever walk down the street and wish you could come upon a kiosk full of books that you could choose one from? Pretty specific daydream, we know. But if you ever have, Jennifer Wilenta of Ditmas Park has made that daydream a reality by constructing a Little Free Library in front of her house.
You can find the library at 391 Marlborough Road. Wilenta, who shared the news on her blog, told us that she stocked the first round of books, and that “the ideal is that people swap books, but so far more people have taken than donated.” Her hope is that the small library becomes a full and vibrant neighborhood resource. So, if you’ve just finished reading something at say, Sycamore and find yourself walking past Wilenta’s house, you could drop your book off there. Unless if course it’s an actual library book, they probably wouldn’t appreciate that.
