A few weeks ago, I posted a blog about how my Little Free Library had been emptied out, repeatedly.
A few days later, I received an email from Jynne Martin, an associate publisher and director of publicity for Riverhead Books in New York City:
"Hi Molly! Saw your piece on your LFL and that is really a bummer – so the opposite of the spirit of generosity and shared reading. We are huge LFL fans at Riverhead (we even custom-made and installed 3 of our own LFL in needy communities last year!) and I would be happy to put together a box of Riverhead & Penguin books to mail to you for restocking. All my best, Jynne"
Earlier this week, a box filled with new books came to my house. And each one of them was adorned with a sticker Jynne had made saying it was from the Snyder family’s little free library. She even included an extra sheet of stickers for future LFL books.
Somehow, the good chapters always seen to outweigh the bad chapters in our books of life, don’t they?
Thank you, Jynne and the fine folks at Riverhead!
