Little Free Libraries

One of the coolest community pay-it-forward services I've come across is Little Free Libraries. The idea is that volunteers become stewards and build a tiny library on their property, somewhere the public can access it. It basically looks like a giant bird house, but with a door and books inside. You bring some books you've finished reading to leave behind and help yourself to what's there.

What a brilliant, selfless, community thing to do. They're a big hit in the US. We happen to have 2 in Calgary. I think that number could go up.
