In addition to my previous post, which has since become outdated, there were the 18 Little Free Libraries plus the 5 other “neighborhood book boxes” around Portland that I’ve also checked out. What I loved about these mini-libraries is that like their full sized counterparts, they promote community. For example, one of these unofficial libraries is located in Share-It Square in Sellwood where the other corners in the intersection are a community bulletin board, a kid’s clubhouse, and a tea station. The one in the Buckman neighborhood stands next to the community compost site.
There’s also the Book, Zine and Treasure Exchange on SE Division.
