My mini free library for the love of books and the community

May 25 2019

I am so excited about sharing this project about my mini free library for the love of books and the community. But first let me go back in time to explain where this passion comes from. When I founded London Mums in 2007 I had in mind a group of people caring for each other, sharing tips, ideas, things, compassion and love. 

Gestures of sharing and love melt my heart and motivate me to do more every day. I knock at neighbours’ and friends’ doors, volunteer to do their shopping, I take time to listen to people looking into their eyes. I am also a hugger. All these things are a bit old school and don’t involve the use of technology or devices. I know I can be annoying because people these days prefer hiding behind a smartphone. But I am determined to set an example here because as little as that can be, I believe it can have a snowball effect. I want that snowball to become an avalanche. I am saying this because my next step in this community LOVE project has been the creation of a mini free library in front of my house gate.
