Little Free Library

Although I am a fan of the Waukesha Public Library, I drive past a Little Free Library going to work everyday and have seen a few others throughout the city. This got me thinking - how many are out there in Waukesha alone? I found a website but unfortunately the listing isn't up to date. It did tell me about a few others that I wasn't aware of in my city.

If you aren't familiar with the Little Free Library program, here is a simple explanation:

It’s a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share. You can, too!

Each box is uniquely designed and some resemble over-sized bird houses with a clear door. 

The one that I drive by all the time is on Delafield Street & Magnolia - across from the Waukesha Police Station. It always looks to have a lot of books in it.

Here are some others I have spotted:

AllWriter's Workshop on Brook Street
Plowshare Center on Main Street
Prairie Avenue & Hamilton Street
N. West Ave & Prospect Ct.
Food Pantry of Waukesha on Sentry Drive
Not sure location but found a Facebook page for this one

I know there are plenty more and from this map, I can also see that plenty are missing.  I would appreciate any help filling in the blanks of others around the city and I am even willing to add a tab to my page
