So while waiting for our Uber ride the other day, we decided to hangout at the concierge of Glorietta 2. Lo and behold, a cute little wooden house full of books sitting quietly in the corner caught our attention.
Apparently, the award-winning US-based Little Free Library organization (LFL) has been in the country since 2015, courtesy of the Ayala Malls and the University of the Philippines.
The LFL is a global movement with presence in more than 40 countries, promoting love of reading through free book exchanges. The idea is simple and familiar: Anybody is free to take a book, return it, lend it to somebody else
take it home, or leave another title in its place.
The LFL has connected the Philippine chapter to the global LFL network while UP has been providing support for book development and generation of the project.
Eight Ayala Malls have the library nooks in the concierge: Glorietta, Greenbelt, Alabang Town Center, TriNoma, Fairview Terraces, Market! Market!, The District Imus, and UP Town Center where it was launched.
So next time you swing by Greenbelt or TriNoma, check out the little free library. Who knows, you might just find a literary treasure in there.
