It’s sort of amazing that we’ve been around for (gah) 3+ years and haven’t written much about our friends over atLittle Free Library. Surely you’ve seen one – mailbox-sized book boxes with room for a selection of books that are free to take and swap and share. Many of these Little Libraries are beautiful as artworks in and of themselves. But I’m intrigued about the possibilities that these little book boxes hold, especially when it comes to artistic inspiration. After all, there’s no telling what you’ll find in a Little Library, is there?
With that in mind, we bring you a new monthly series that’s all about making art, making stories, even making performances based on Little Libraries. Some of our exercises and ideas are related to the stuff that’s in the Little Libraries. Others are tied to the libraries themselves. But either way, we hope you’ll find a Little Library close to you (or far!) and try some of these out. And we hope that you’ll share them with us, by posting them to our Facebook page or sending in photos of your Little Library-inspired art to our email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
