Happy Birthday, Little Blue!

The Little Blue Book Cart on the ground floor of Capen Hall by the Capen Cafe.

After one year, Little Blue is still going strong.

In November of last year, the UB Libraries launched Little Blue, a brightly-painted library book cart, filled with books for everyone to share. Modeled after the Little Free Library, a nonprofit organization that promotes literacy and community through free book exchanges, Little Blue has seen a constant flow of books, magazines, albums, tapes and DVDs throughout the year.

Wander by at almost any time of day on the ground floor of Capen Hall, and you’ll find UB students and staff happily browsing Little Blue’s changing assortment of donated books.

Return the book you take, or simply leave another; sharing is the only rule. So take a book, leave a book, and enjoy!
