Rose’s story about how it all began:
“I saw my first Little Free Libraries on the Connecticut shoreline. One in Milford and one in Lordship that was a Schoolhouse LFL in memory of Victoria Soto, an American teacher who was murdered in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. I put a card table in my front yard for my Morris neighbors and everyone on their way to nearby Bantam Lake. Soon I found a cabinet that fit 100 books, hung up my sign that said “take a book – leave a book” and watched with amazement as many people stopped to visit! Then one day it was “the case of the missing LFL” since someone stole all the books, the cabinet and the sign! I decided to rebuild my little free library and work with the community to start an LFL movement in all my neighboring towns.”
