LFLs are great feel-good projects for those of us with books to pass on. But of all the dozens I've visited, most are untended, stuffed to the gills with outdated books that have gotten wet and wrinkled. (I do my best to tidy them up, throw away the ruined books...) Does this book talk about people who actually *benefit* from the libraries, or do any of you know of any LFL that actually does get good 'circulation?'
Tori My sister's LFL is doing well, so far. She has had it about three months. It is in her front yard and on a street where people walk a lot. She leaves it full of best sellers and literary books and they are taken quite a lot. I think it can depend on the neighborhood it is in and if anyone is tending it. Thank you for taking care of those you find!
Ed Erwin There are literally 100s of them in my town. I personally get at least one good book per month from them. Often they are things I'd never have come across otherwise. The one nearest my house gets very good circulation, with books changing daily.
