The Little Free Bocce Court

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.

We had those little boxes around town for a while. People put textbooks in them, since those are the books the Big Free Library won't take as donations. Then they switched to being a repository for donated food. But someone left raw meat in one, and the boxes disappeared after that. If we had a bocce ball court, people would be terribly perplexed for a short time before the balls disappeared.
