Thank you to our kind neighbors who surprised us with a Kindness Rock.

Kindness Rocks are painted with messages and left in random places for others to find. The messages can be varied and are intended to uplift a person and may also inspire them to spread the word. 

The Kindness Rock Project motto "Leave one, share one, keep one," is very compatible to our Little Free Library mantra "Take a book, share a book."

We LOVE it. Thank you. You made our day.

Bill and I were very surprised and beside ourselves with joy today when we received one of my very favorite books, Star Girl by Jerry Sprinelli, as a donation from Blackman Farm Little Free Library in Tennessee. 
We like to wrap our paperback books in clear shelf paper for a longer life so we signed the donation with our stamp and gave it a special wrap before putting it back out. Pictured below is he Blackman Farm LFL stamp. Also pictured below is the inside front cover with our stamp and your original note. 
How much farther might Star Girl travel? Keep an eye out for it in your Little Free Library and thanks Blackman Farm LFL very much for making our day.

Thank you Neighbors for making the Montauk Little Free Library a success. Bill & I thank everyone for their donations and returns. Remember this little library is FREE TO ALL! 
If you have a large box of books to donate feel free leave them on our front porch if we are not at home. Here's a peak at some of the new titles in the Library today.

We also want to thank the Westerly Friends of the Library for their summer book sale. As donors and buyers, the summer and winter sales keep our library full of books and  help our beautiful Westerly Public Library buy new materials.

Our Little Free Library continues to be very busy. For those of you that haven't had a chance to stop by, Bill put together this movie so you could see the entire library. Hope to see you soon. Enjoy!

Montauk Little Free Library has been so busy! Most of our children's board books - gone. Many of our children's titles - gone. We have received a couple back. Thank you. Also, we hope the reader that read Jurassic Park enjoyed it! Thank you for returning it.

We also received a fantastic surprise this weekend by the Savoy Bookstore & Cafe! Thank you to "A & Z" for filling up our Little Free Library with young adult and adult paperbacks.

We've added some more children's paperbacks and will be getting some more board books in the future. Thanks to everyone who is being respectful with the library and to all the readers we have on Montauk that are enjoying their summer with a little reading.

Our Little Free Library opened quietly and has been receiving a steady stream of visitors young and old. We've also had some returns and some small donations that we are very grateful for. Thank you to our neighbor that left two Irma Bombeck books - she was a favorite of my Mom. Your gift brought back memories of both. One was already borrowed!

Thank you to our neighbor that donated Deadly Shores, part of the Destroyermen novels, from New York Times best selling author Taylor Anderson. And Thank you also for Ashes of Victory by another New York Times best selling science fiction writer David Weber!

Probably the best part of running the library so far has been reading some of the notes from our guests. Here's to a great summer, keep reading Montauk!
