How to get on the Little Free Library party train in Pomona

From Daily Bulletin

” You’re forgiven if you mistake the 20-odd house-shaped wooden boxes for large mailboxes.But peek inside, and the mystery begins to unfold.The boxes are found across the city — in front of homes, in community gardens, a few community centers and at least one in a laundromat. They’re Little Free Libraries, and they’ve become a global movement.The concept is simple: Readers are encouraged to take a book and return a book, said David McElwain, who coordinates the Pomona Little Free Library effort.They promote literacy and a love of books in addition to serving as a meeting place where people can strike up conversations, McElwain said.”
