New Bookmonger

Few things are based on the honor system these days. But Little Free Library (littlefreelibrary.org) stewards trust that if they make books freely available in mailbox-sized collections, borrowers will one day return them. The project started in Hudson, Wis., in 2009, and today there are nearly 3,000 worldwide. Scott Gelzer and Pat Wyzbinski started 29 libraries in Milwaukee in memory of their son Brandon, who would have been 29 this past May. “Let’s be known,” Gelzer says, “as a city that reads.”
