As a lover of small, portable and/or unorthodox libraries and library-like structures, I am obviously very smitten with Clinton Community Library’s “Littlest Library” Book Booth.

Everything about this project appeals to me, from the community involvement (especially the housing of the cookbooks in a nearby local restaurant), to the upcycling of the booth, to the distinction between “smallest” and “littlest” libraries, to the general idea of the pint-sized library. You can read more about the project over at Library Journal. I’m personally looking forward to seeing how the branch fares over time. Such an interesting and inspiring form of outreach. I would love to see book booths catch on in more cities.
