Little Free Library Co-founders Win LJ Movers & Shakers

Congratulations to Little Free Library Co-founders Todd Bol and Rick Brooks for being named the Movers & Shakers 2013 – Innovators by the Library Journal!

I knew about it a while ago, but it’s still very exciting to read the official announcement online for the first time.

The little free libraries are small but mighty. They are spreading fast and wide around the country and the world. They are effective tools to share the love of books and reading, to build communities and connections with neighbors, and to promote library and literacy.

A couple of months ago I had the pleasure of meeting Todd and visiting him at his LFL studio in Hudson, Wisconsin. To read more about the visit and the little free library he gave me, go to my previous post.

I am very happy for Todd and Rick for receiving this public recognition. It’s a well deserved recognition. What they have done and achieved is remarkable. I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this honor than Todd and Rick for their contribution to the world.
