    This library needs more: kids books right now especially middle grades

    We've added kids books there over the last couple years and have noticed a pretty high turnover. Current selection is great for parents-to-be (baby name books and baby care and board books) as well as women wanting to "Lean In" to the workplace. Generally a pretty eclectic and interesting selection to be found.

    Thanks for this contest! Last year my book- and bike-loving kid and I got FS cycling motivation sitting LFLs and thought it would make a fun category to track!

    It did not have the collection of books that I expected. They were all children's books. It sorely needed books for adults.

    Arrgh. I messed up my first day and forgot to get a picture of the bike. If you have a wild imagination, you can see the reflection in the glass. I don't like wet, so I was already miserable and just wanted to take this dumb picture!! Please, please, please, cut me some slack. I'll do better in the future.

    This was spotted near the intersection of Lafayette Dr. and Queen Mary Dr. in Olney, MD. I don't carry books with me nor do I pick them up on rides, so I won't get points for that. I just like to play along with the games.

    But, I did notice a Tom Clancy book. I'm not much of a reader. I'm more of a rider.

    Little Free Library Pointless Prize at 2404 Burke Ave in Alexandria. It's a kids library and definitely needs more kids books! Also it's on a tricycle!

    Part of the joy of offering a prize is the opportunity to extend grace. When I saw the forecast up there today, I wasn't sure ANYONE would be out riding, so you get points for that. I will "infer" the bike's presence because why on earth would you have been out there anyway?

    You can be whimsical in your recommendations for the LFL's -- that might get points. I totally get the not carrying extra stuff on rides.

    If your book/bike loving kid ends up with you on one of these rides, I'm pretty sure the faceless cabal has extra points for junior reader/riders! Just get a part of that rider in the photo.

    Is that open to the elements? It doesn't look like the books have any protection! Yikes! (nice find and use of coordinates!)

    This one could use more books on wildlife, given that it had a sign on the base indicating that this was a certified wildlife area.
