Visit a little free library.

Type a page or more about the LFL that is the subject of your swap and what you think of them, and include the index number of the LFL so your partner can look it up if they like. Please also mention if you took a book or left one.

Paste the photo(s) you took into your letter.

Print your letter.

Mail to your partner.

You can find information about Little Free Libraries here

If there is interest in this swap I have ideas for a couple more.

I'm not going to let anyone questionable into this swap, but I'll angel for anyone that flakes.

Please remember that rating is an important part of any swap. If you don't rate your partner you'll not be welcome in any more of my swaps.

Our local newspaper just did a story on this! I love it! I would love to participate! I looked up our city and found that we have only one... so I might just make one and place it in our yard!! Thanks for doing this swap!

How cool!! I'd never heard of Little Free Libraries before, but I love books, and sure enough, there's one in the mid-size town about 45 minutes from me. Watching for now, but if I have the chance to go up there and have the means to get a photo printed, I'll join. At least you've let another person know about LFLs!

I've been thinking about setting one of these up in my yard after I move next month. There's one 5 miles from me where I live now but none in the town I'm moving to. Neat swap! Would definitely join an email swap like this; my printer doesn't print pix too well.

The reason I have added the photos into the letter is so you know they don't have to be professional quality. Perhaps if you don't have a printer, or one that doesn't work too well you could print your letter out at the library. Ours only charges 10 cents per printed page and they print in color. :)

The reason behind this swap is to help spread the word about Little Free Libraries. :) Okay, and because I'm dieing to see some others. So far I've only run across them in my city. We have 5 but I've only seen 2 of them.

Thanks for the comments ladies.

Someone built a Little Free Library and put it up in town but I don't think it's registered with the LFL website. Can I still participate?

You are more than welcome to participate April.

I didn't see that last comment until today. I'm sending April a message and will assign partners by tomorrow.
