I don’t know when they first took root in Wallingford (although Kimberly wrote about hers here back in 2012), but they’ve been a pleasant addition to my neighborhood strolls (and my bedside table) for at least half a decade.
In his honor, I hopped on my bike Saturday afternoon and took a slow loop through the neighborhood, photographing each library I passed. Given how the philosophy of giving without expecting anything in return, and of investing in the education of everyone around you, feels so simpatico with our neighborhood, it didn’t surprise me how many I came across in just a half hour ride. And I’m sure the ones I found were half as many as Wallingford holds. Thanks to everyone who has built one or donated a book!
