"Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers. And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors to learning are always open."
~Laura Bush

I printed some bookmarks from text & images from the

website, covered them in clear contact paper, and inserted them in the library card holder in the style used by libraries in years gone by to hold the date due cards:

How Does This Library Work?
This Little Free Library offers a way
 to share good things to read—favorite
 books from your childhood or books
 you would recommend to friends;
 books that teach, intrigue and engage
 you.  All of us can help by keeping this
 collection stocked with good reading

Whose library is this?  It belongs to
 everybody -- neighbors, friends, and
 people we don’t even know yet.
  Anyone can use it.  That’s why we
 want to take care of it. 

Take a book. If you see something
 you would like to read, take it.  Look
 inside and see who gave it; who else
 has read it. 
Share it. Return it to any Little
 Library or pass it on to a friend.

Give books. Leave notes in them.  Be
 a friend of all libraries by helping any
 way you can. Pay it Forward! 

We support reading for children,
 literacy for adults, and libraries around
 the world.
