26 LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 12.16 A BIT CLOSER Photos by Terrence Humphrey "A lot of the Little Free Libraries actually end up starting a library in a child's home," says Felicia Young of Metro United Way. She's talking about the "take a book, leave a book" Little Free Libraries at homes and businesses throughout the city. (Metro United Way has planted 41 of them.) Participants build the libraries themselves; some, like the pink one on Morton Avenue, match their house. "At any given time, there's about 25 books in a Little Free Library," Young says. "If there are 25 books in that library every two weeks, over the course of the year we're looking at hundreds of books." — Jenny Kiefer 1. Doctor Who-themed library on Pope Street in Clifton; 2.
