"Scanning the recent news articles about the LFL movement reveals something else, too. More often than not, those interviewed acknowledge the sense of community and collegiality that grow up around the little libraries. From a Los Angeles Times piece on a local LFL: 'It has turned strangers into friends and a sometimes impersonal neighborhood into a community. It has become a mini–town square….' This gets to the heart of what many of us in libraries know: knowledge shared within a framework of caring and familiarity can strengthen communities."
