Cape libraries: Big ideas in a small box

April 09, 2012WEST YARMOUTH — Jan Hively opened the swinging door and ran her finger along the row of books.

The Mill Pond Village woman knew most of the titles. She had placed the majority of the books in the "Little Free Library," a well-crafted contraption made from Wisconsin cranberry crates.

But her hand stopped at a new title, something donated by another condo resident.

"Oooh, a poetry book," Hively said, flipping the book over with interest.

Hively, a resident of the Mill Pond Village condo community, recently received the mini-library from two friends in Wisconsin, Todd Bol and Rick Brooks. The Midwestern duo started a nonprofit organization in 2010 called Little Free Library, which helps people around the world set up tiny libraries, fostering a love of books, creativity and neighborhood, Bol said.

"The neighborhood ends up defining what's in there," he said about these mini-libraries.
