"[Little Free Libraries] are examples of performative community enhancement, driven more so by the desire to showcase one’s passion for books and education than a genuine desire to help the community in a meaningful way."

@lucasrizoli Fair enough, but I still prefer walking my extra books to the free library box over giving them to ugly behemoths like Goodwill. (Yes, I know a yard sale is possible, but I'm never focused enough for that.)

There's no way I'd consider them a replacement for actual public libraries, either.
