It's a Little Free Library where neighbors can take a book to read or leave a book to share. It's proof that not all books have gone digital in the Silicon Valley daze of ebooks, kindles, nooks & iPads! You can find it @ 931 Myrtle Street off Hedding in San Jose's College Park neighborhood.
It's special neighbors, like this one, which makes living in our community so enjoyable! The turn over in books is great with different surprises each time I've checked!
If you decide against walking there, make sure you type Myrtle Street, and NOT Myrtle Avenue into your GPS Navi or you'll end up in South San Jose!
If you want to make your own neck of the woods friendly to book lovers then I encourage you to set up a Lending Library. You can get some great inspiration on this Little Free Library pinterest board.
Peets and Starbucks have gotten too corporate to pull off the concept of a fee free community reading book shelf, but maybe we can convince Hannah or Crema Coffee to add a public bookcase to their coffee shop.
