It is delightful to see the kindness of others. A while back I ran across a book sharing cupboard on the fence-line of a nearby garden. Take a book, leave a book, help yourself. Why not? I really like how that neighbor reached out to the community.
Since then, I’ve noticed a few more public offerings. The second book exchange was on a quiet side street. I couldn’t help but smile at the happy paint colors. Right on!
There was sign of graffiti past on the box, but happily that neighbor tidied that up & continued with the sharing.
And now I’ve happened upon another kiosk! It sits beside the pathway of a quiet city park. This one says “take what you need, Leave what you can”. Lots of folk travel the path – and plenty exercise dogs in the big open meadow. I’m so curious to know whether there is a turnover of goods or not. I’ll have to make sure I walk that way again in a couple of weeks to see. I have my fingers crossed that the parks department won’t remove it.
