Little Free Library is small in size, but is making big impact on kids

HUDSON, OH - As kids head back to school, some have visited the library without ever leaving home. It's not because of their iPads.

The Little Free Library is a book exchange in the front yard of the Ramsey family in Hudson. The concept is pretty simple. Neighbors are invited to take a book or leave a book.  Or both. It not only helps kids keep reading over the summer, it also brings neighbors together.  

"We'll look out the window every once in a while and see a bike stopped and it's a neighbor or two. We'll come out and get all excited and look to see which books they chose,"  said parent Cindy Ramsey.

Ramsey's daughter, Mary, loves reading and gets a big kick out of exchanging books with her neighborhood friends.  "It's really fun to know people actually care and they put books in for other people to read,"  the fifth grader said shortly after a friend dropped off a book to the exchange.
