That’s pretty! Statues, Cobblestones, no litter, white folk… In our hood, used needles fill the “collection box”, anything metal has been stripped off and sold, the windows have bars, and no one can read. Maybe it bothers me more than it should… lol. Nice place.
@ghostinrags sounds fun! In my neighborhood, used collection boxes fill the litter boxes. Anything metal has been listened to on surround sound, and the bars have windows. Everyone can has cheese burger. Nice place.
@Cythwulf@ghostinrags sounds fun! In my neighborhood, used turkey cooking pans fill the litter boxes. Anything metal and punk is rad, and the bars serve wings half-off after 8. Everyone regardless of race has an alright time. Nice place.
@Cythwulf@DonnyDont@ghostinrags@thumperchick Neat! That sounds fun! In my neighborhood, metalocalypse is played at the strip club, where folded dollars litter the collection box on the bar,and people of every race,gender and religion can read the sign that says do not share dirty needles,and no one ever orders the cheeseburgers. Nice place.
Yeah - it’s really amazing what a community can look like when the residents actually come together to build it up and don’t shit all over it.
Yeah, those NIMBY residents usually save it up to shit all over someplace else where people that don’t look like them live in instead. It’s only amazing when you are the ones living inside the gated community of the “haves”.
There’s one in El Dorado, Ar that used to be a phone booth. I took a look in it just for the heck of it (I need more books like I need more noses). It has some new stuff, some old stuff, some classics. I’ve thought about putting one up here but we would be better off putting up a food booth instead.
The video is a re-run and I think my comment may be a repeat also.
I remember thinking “what a great idea” the first time I heard about Little Free Library, but my first-hand experience has not been a lot of what Irk describes. I see mostly stuff like “Learning Lotus 1-2-3” and copies of trade paperbacks with the cover torn off.
We don’t have one here but I’ve thought about putting one up. I know they turned a lot of the old phone booths in the UK into libraries. I think it’s a great and quaint idea. I do think that a lot of books would simply disappear tho. I have a bunch of good books I could put in there as my mom was a book reviewer. Lots of 1st editions never cracked open. Somewhere, lol.
