People need books and libraries! So, some of the latest innovations are pop up libraries, of which there are many all over the world and nearby, too.
A New Mexico friend sent me a lengthy news article featuring scenic Carrizozo’s (NM) tiny, free, pop up libraries for its 984 residents – their pop up libraries are wooden boxes housing donated books, which keep changing. The principle: take one, return one.
Pop up libraries in the Alameda County Library system are more sizeable and are placed in non-traditional spaces such as the Santa Rita Jails (Start with a Story); the District Attorney’s Office/Family Justice Center (opened July, 2013), Ashland Youth Center (opened July, 2013) and NewPark Mall, 3.5 miles from the Fremont Main Library.
