If you don't know what a Little Free Library is, here's the scoop - random people put up some type of box, little house, etc. and stock it with books that are free for the taking. Take a book, and when you're done, leave it in the same little library, a different one, or pass it along - I think this type of sharing is certainly in the spirit of ham radio, so if you look close, you'll see one of my contributions to our Little Free Library:
With any luck, maybe a neighbor will get curious, take it, and become a new ham!
