I love when neighbors place Free Little Libraries outside their homes, but this house in Los Feliz takes the cake. Ten years ago, the owner installed a bocce ball court in the median between the sidewalk and street, open to anyone who wants to play. pic.twitter.com/Z9NxgbZlN6— L.A.

The Little Free Library movement places book swapping libraries in public places. Take a book if you like and leave a book when you can. I find them helpful because the practice of actually throwing away books is so repulsive to me that Little Free Libraries give me a way to dispose of some books that are worth reading but for which I have no space
The movement has inspired other public sharing places, such as little free art galleries and, now, a little free bocce court. Los Angeles author Paul Haddad says that in the Los Feliz neighbhood of his city, there's a bocce court that one kind landowner makes available to passersby who would like to play a game.
