This weekend, I discovered some true hidden treasures: Saskatoon’s Free Little Libraries. I love reading. I love libraries and bookstores. My son is growing up with books surrounding him. He has so many books and loves being read to. I have so many books as well. I started thinking about Free Little Libraries the other day. I stopped at one in Ontario a few years ago while camping, and have been intrigued with the idea ever since. I spoke to my son about trading his books. It’s really hard for him to get rid of toys or books, but I convinced him to let me collect a few so we could trade them. I had a lot to get rid of, and I chose about ten of his books. He went through it later and took a few back. We spent three hours driving around while it snowed to find some of the Free Little Libraries that Saskatoon has to offer. There’s a list of registered Free Little Libraries, but I’ve also had people tell me about others. I’m sure there are some I’ve missed, but I can add them if I discover more. It was a fun afternoon, and my son was really happy to get more books. He was happy to give some away to trade. I got rid of a lot of books, but I still have a whole box to drop off as I find the rest of the Free Little Library Locations. I hope you enjoy the list and make sure to visit any that are in your area! Some of these have the full address, and others you get to look for as you drive around the street! My son has gotten very good at finding them.
