Free libraries are often freestanding weather-resistant structures that offer visitors the option to take or leave a book. They are usually maintained by individuals or community groups and are a fun addition to any private neighborhood or public area.
How many times have you seen a fabulous book in your Hobbs Realty vacation rental, only to realize you won’t have time to finish it before you have to head home? Miniature free libraries are perfect for vacationers because you can help yourself to a great book without having to worry about finishing it by the end of your vacation week. You can leave one in its place this time or bring one back to share next time you come to visit us.
