    I’m about to move into a house and want to put one of these up, but not if the cost outweighs the utility. How do people feel about having them in their neighborhood? Are these actually used?

      Our next door neighbor put one up and I see people taking and putting in books at least once a week. I love this whole concept.

      My neighborhood has one every few blocks, and it seems like the books are constantly rotating in and out. I can’t imagine anyone having a problem with them unless they’re very ugly or falling apart.

    I love the little free libraries. However, I just discovered recently that if you are going to put one in, think about how close to the ground/dirt you want the book compartment to be. Ran by one the other day and took out a book that looked interesting, and the inside cover and pages were crawling with ants!
