Free Little Library Update – Not good news

We ran by something pretty disturbing this morning on our run. Our route took us by the Free Little Library I blogged about back on June 6th, 2014. #100happydays Take a Book; Return a Book. What was so disturbing was that it had been torch! Yup, set a fire – a little library fire! It is just so disappointing to see this happen in our community.

All that is left inside is ashes!

We continued our run and I got to thinking, what would make a person to this. Even if it was a group of humans who decided to so this, one person had to light the fire and that one person could have made the decision not to. The act of someone torching the little library also makes me wonder where they will stop; will it be a back yard shed next, a porch or a garage?

Are books that obscure now? I know that books aren’t quite as appealing any more to a lot of people; even we have e-readers, but people still love to hold and read books. Books are knowledge, discovery, escape, and entertainment. Let’s hope they never disappear!

We have to thank the owners of the little library for their generosity in setting it up for the community to use. It’s unfortunate that now it will be gone.

  1. I can’t believe someone would do this. I’ve used that little library as a lender and borrower. Tragic.
