Creating literary water coolers with free little libraries

A story in Library Journal begins:

Rick Brooks and Todd Bol like to spend their weekends endowing and building libraries.

The Wisconsin pair want to top Andrew Carnegie, who built and endowed 2,509 libraries. The only difference is that the libraries Brooks and Bol construct are generally made of wood and Plexiglas, are about 24" x 24" x 30", and cost only about $350.

These little libraries are filled with books that were otherwise gathering dust on shelves. ""Everybody asks, 'Aren't they going to steal the books?' But you can't steal a free book.""
