Little Libraries are popping up around Halifax, thanks to a grassroots group of SIM students and community volunteers calling themselves FYI Halifax. The group began informally through discussions of how libraries and information professionals can be agents of social change, both locally and globally.
Little Free Libraries are an international movement. Neighborhood book exchanges are built and installed by and for communities.
Ideally, they can be art pieces that promote neighborhood pride, and the exchange of books can encourage connections among neighbors.
The first Little Library in Halifax was installed during Open Street Sunday at the Open Mic House (2539 Agricola Street).
