    We love Little Free Libraries too! What is a Little Free Library?
    It’s a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share. There are two little free libraries near downtown Silver Spring. http://www.littlefreelibrary.org
