The Little Free Library movement was started in 2009 when Todd Bol of Hudson, Wisconsin built a model of a one-room schoolhouse, filled it with books, and mounted it on a post on his lawn. It was a tribute to his mother, who was a book lover and school teacher. Soon, the idea took off and today there are nearly 40,000 Little Free Library book exchanges around the world.
