Tiny Perfect Library
I have a great little library just down the street. Its free - no library cards, fines, or need to be quiet. I first saw one of these on Toronto Island and attributed it to the Islands' strong cultural identity, but have learned that Little Free Libraries have been springing up all over the continent. I check it out on the way by on my various dog walks and have slowly left two boxes of books that I've been carting around for decades. There is always something of interest there and it's rarely depleted.
The other thing I appreciate is the design. I've never talked to the owner, but clearly the cabinet was designed by a professional - an industrial designer, I'm thinking. Very thoughtful detailing and skillful fabrication. Kudos to the designer/builder.
