When did little libraries begin popping up?
The little library movement began in 2009, when Todd Bol put a small, wooden model of a one-room schoolhouse on his front porch in Hudson, Wisconsin. He filled it with books and invited his neighbors to borrow them. Word spread, and people began building their own little libraries. There are now estimated to be over 35,000 little libraries around the world.
