Books in the Free Little Library in friday harbor For those of you that are unfamiliar with the Little Free Library concept, it’s a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share.

The Little Free Library is located off the Nichols Street sidewalk on the patio of The Barking Bird, just down the street from The Tucker House Inn.
