Seasons Greetings and Salutations!

We've seen an increase in traffic to this site and our second home on Facebook, thanks to some promotion on the official Little Free Library Facebook page--so WELCOME! our new visitors!

Feel free to poke around the site and learn more about out pint-sized hall of (literary) heroes and how it came to be.

It's been a busy month of December for us. Over the last week or so we've done a complete rotation of the books and comics in the library. We received a few new donations that have now been stamped and added this past weekend. Just about everything in the library now is fresh--save for the recent movie novels we featured in the From Books to Screen series (they're in there also).

Other new additions include:

Crime and mystery books, graphic novels, and comics--for a variety of ages. Classic Nancy Drew books! And a comic version of Nancy's newer adventures too.

By way of a generous donor we now have some excellent Batman: Shadow of the Bat comics following the caped crusader through his adventures as the "World's Greatest Detective" (sorry Sherlock!) as takes on the inmates at Arkham Asylum.

And I'm SUPER excited about Incognito, a great couple of graphic novels by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. Not your typical superhero-fare, they're steeped in intrigue have a classic pulp noir look and feel to them (they're for grown ups, FYI).

If novels are more your thing, we have a copy of the 1934 detective classic The Thin Man by Dashiell Hammet!

We also acquired two editions of globe-trotting reporter/detective Tintin. While relatively unknown in the US before his big film debut last year, Tintin has been a cherished character in Europe for decades and more well-known around the world. Each book has three classic Tintin adventures and are great for kids of all ages.

Finally, we'd like to pay tribute to the seasonal help we hired to provide customer service and spread some holiday cheer. He was all smiles when he began:

...but I'm afraid we worked the chap a bit too hard:

The holidays can be tough on all of us I guess.

Before he left us, he put together a wonderful selection of Christmas titles to get you in the spirit of the season. And there are many more books, comics, and graphic novels to check out as well!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and have a fantastic New Year!

P.S. You can always find us on this site by going to!
