The secondary stuff often reflects the passions of the little library steward and can stretch the imagination or veer towards the practical. One woman who loves children reported that she places 4 to 5 tootsie-pops a week in her library to maintain a consistent flow of kids and their candy-happy curiosity. Some stewards have scissors dangling on a string to cut fresh herbs from a garden at the base of their library. Other neighborhoods share artistic bookmarks from one library to the next and even painted rocks designed with books or authors names. Gifts left in little libraries of origami peace cranes are known to represent kindness between neighbors in different parts of the country. Some stewards in cold climate states share knitted mittens in the winter months, stretching a string from their little library to a tree to display their offerings like waving flags to a cozy spirit. Neighbors share coupons, wet-one packets and many other neighborly essentials that cater to basic needs. It’s all the secondary stuff that gives a little library its own very special personality.
