Todd Bal was an ordinary guy who wanted to find a way to honor his mother. She, as a teacher, had helped many kids learn how to read. Todd decided to build thirty miniature libraries and place them in locations between Minnesota and Wisconsin. People were free to take a book and leave a book. These little libraries became gathering places for friends and neighbors to unite with books as common ground. Word spread quickly, and soon, other people wanted to know how to have a Little Free Library in their community. Since their inception, Little Free Libraries have been placed by kids, volunteers, teachers, hikers, and others in places from street corners to refugee camps.
