LITTLE FREE LIBRARIES
are places where a neighborhood shares books.

Sometimes you pick one up.
Sometimes you drop one off.
Sometimes you take one and leave one.

Crone's Cobblestone Cottage has sponsored a Little Free Library since 2013, when Joan Crone's son built her this model for a birthday present. The design features closely resemble those of the cottage, right down to the cobblestones, red door, and extended eaves. This prompted Littlefreelibrary.org to place the Cobblestone Cottage LFL on its Libraries of Distinction pinterest board.

The little free library is a community-sourced book exchange that encourages the people in Mission Hills and their guests to trade books they've enjoyed and want to share with others. It's in the spirit of the Ponder Post, but if anything the LFL is a two-way conversation. As a guest at Crone's Cobblestone Cottage, or as a passer-by, you are encouraged to give and take.
