And in other local news on this Friday of fun – news of libraries and books! – a new “Little Free Library” has opened in Grand Rapids – at the airport!
The story is below, from WOOD-TV news. I can’t wait to see it the next time I fly (mid-November is on the schedule). I may just take a book and leave one while on a little vacation to visit our son and his wife.

CASCADE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — The next time you’re waiting for your flight at Gerald R. Ford International Airport without anything to do, you can take advantage of a new library. The airport partnered with Kent District Library to set up the new Little Free Library, which opened to travelers Monday morning (Sept. 12, 2016) Travelers can snag a book before their flight free of charge or leave books that they finished on their trip. Volunteers will be at the airport a few times a week to make sure the shelves stay stocked.
