The Little Free Libraries coming soon to the little City of Lake Worth

You can read all about this at the Neighborhood Assoc. Presidents Council's (NAPC) website and on Facebook. The Post's Kevin Thompson has an article on this; here's an excerpt on why Lake Worth is getting these Little Free Libraries:
     That’s because this unabashedly quirky, artsy seaside city has officially embraced the Little Free Library movement, where tiny libraries filled with a variety of books are placed on homeowners’ lawns and in public spaces.
     The concept: Take a book, leave a book. The libraries, in a sense, serve as mini town squares.
     “It’s a community building exercise because it makes people come out of the woodwork and talk,” said Mary Lindsey, a College Park resident who was instrumental in getting 34 little libraries into the city. [emphasis added]
