A good use of space which promotes community and education are little libraries. Pictured here is one found in the downtown core of Calgary and as you can see it is eye catchingly decorated and has few books in it. I like to think that is because it is regularly used!
How it works – leave a book and/or take a book. Any book. In this one there are textbooks. There are also separate, smaller little libraries for children’s books which are usually beside the adult libraries, if someone goes above and beyond to plant both.

A touch of creativity in the community.
