According to every other article in my feed, Little Free Libraries have become more popular than the eternal struggle of Ninjas Vs Pirates. It appears they have grown in popularity faster than the Beatles, yet have the same adoring fans.
But what is a “Little Free Library,” you ask? A LFL, as they are known on the streets, is a small box decorated like a house with an opening on one or more sides. Like a birdhouse. And like a birdhouse, people can put books in it and take books out, sharing like our feathered friends.
Also like a birdhouse, birds shit on it.
So a community is brought together by the love of reading.
Or so a community would have you believe. As we have learned in the upcoming collection, Cold New Year (Banned Library Volume III), coming soon to an ereader near you, LFL can also be harbingers of doom.
See, when the Banned Library was coerced into making a Little Banned Library, we found that it was a talisman of evil. As a voodoo doll is to a man, our LBL was to our library, breaking when broken and bringing ruin unto our lives.
We warn you, please, keep the LFL’s to a minimum and use real damn libraries with actual people in them that want to help you, not some dumb box in the middle of a park where people like to touch each other after dark.
