While we all love the Morse Institute and the Bacon Free library, sometimes bigger isn’t better. When it comes to little free libraries, there is *little* chance of getting overwhelmed by options or lost within shelves of books. Some Natick residents seem to have taken these advantages to heart, as they have pulled out all the stops in creating their own unique Little Free Libraries. Natick is rife with what looks like miniature houses or imaginative mailboxes, but are actually Little Free Libraries.
Little Free Library is a worldwide organization which aims to spread access to free books. You can go up to any Little Free Library, any time of day, and pick out a book to take with you. There is no fee, and no time that you have to return the book you borrowed; if you like the book you could even keep it. Wellesley has about a dozen Little Free Libraries around (that we know of), which have been built and decorated by Wellesley residents and/or organizations. Below we have gathered photos of all little libraries that we could hunt down, which we did with the help of the Little Free Library app, which shows the location of all Little Free Libraries in the area.
