Little Free Library: Sharing books & building community

Rick Brooks is co-founder and program director of the nonprofit organization Little Free Library. Little Free Libraries are little buildings, sort of like a birdhouse but bigger, in people's front yards or other public spaces, that hold books for the taking. The idea is to share books and the love of reading...and draw the community closer along the way. Since the idea's start in 2009, nearly 12,000 Little Free Libraries have been put into use around the world. Buck spoke with Rick recently to learn all about them and why people are loving the idea.
