The Mini Libraries

Urban Librarians Unite is pleased to announce its own small network of little libraries. These bright orange newspaper boxes have been set up outside of libraries in Brooklyn and Queens which are closed due to damage from Hurricane Sandy. These tiny, all weather libraries house about a hundred books at a time and there is no expectation whatsoever that the books will come back to them.

Urban Libraries Unite + the librarians of Queens Library have pretty much stolen my heart. Give them money.
