A few weeks ago, Adam from Mythbusters tweeted about Tiny Lending Libraries, which are outdoor enclosures with free books for people to donate or take. Neatorama had a post on it here: http://www.neatorama.com/2011/09/08/tiny-free-libraries/
Matt Pinner wanted to build one, and invited me out to Crash Space to paint it up, so we did that Wednesday. You’ll be able to visit the library outside Crash Space in a couple days at 10526 Venice Blvd, Culver City CA 90232
update: http://blog.crashspace.org/2012/06/crashlibrary/ Crashspace has an articles and some pics and videos of the library in action!!
