We had a very damp but lovely morning at Mount Pleasant Farmer's Market hosting our Pop-Up Little Free Library and Book Recommendation Collection. Visitors to our table were invited to take or leave a free book, as well as contribution book recommendations which will be ordered by the Mount Pleasant Branch of the Vancouver Public Library and presented on our community curated shelf at the library this fall.
A pile of diverse book recommendations were gathered from from community members who stopped by to chat. It will be interesting and exciting to see the community curated library shelf come together featuring all of these wonderful titles. We found the books that people recommended or chose from the free library to be great conversation starters and ice breakers between visitors to our table. Hopefully the community library shelf will continue this experience of interconnection and community exchange.
