Little Free Library in Gowanus:

I came across this Little Free Library outside of a building, facing the sidewalk, on 4th Avenue in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn.

According to the website, 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.”

Nice idea!

Easy and good!
