Little Free Library On Wheels

Westport, Connecticut-based writer Jane Green is a big supporter of the Little Free Library project, but when she was prevented from building one in her own neighborhood she came up with a novel solution—the Remarkable Bookcycle. Green’s mobile free library was created from an old three-wheeled cargo bike and decorated to pay homage to a defunct beloved Westport bookstore called the Remarkable Bookshop. Although the store closed more than twenty years ago, Green fondly recalls the bookshop’s place in the town’s literary community.

Throughout the summer, the Remarkable Bookcycle has been visiting local beaches, parks, and public places distributing free books to all interested readers young and old.

  2. We saw many little free libraries on the footpaths outside homes in Toronto. What a lovely idea.
