Margret Aldrich chronicles the movement that began in 2009 with the simple concept of “take a book, return a book” in The Little Free Library Book, which includes photos, helpful how-tos, and professional blueprints.

Kits and preassembled libraries — available from Little Free Library — range from $270 to $1,500, but many of the more than 25,000 LFLs worldwide are DIY-constructions inspired by robots, animals, or architecture style — from rustic barns to Victorian mansions.

Regardless of design, the burgeoning campaign indicates that a little library makes a big impact.
