Ever heard that They Might Be Giants song that goes: “make a little birdhouse in your soul”?
I have no idea what any of the lyrics mean. But if anything could capture the quaintness of a birdhouse in my soul, it is the new little free libraries that have been developed by the Library, Pemberton Valley Seniors and the Men’s Shed. They’ve been on display at the Community Centre, pending their installation around the neighbourhood, where they will offer shelter for books wanting new homes and new readers. (May they be well-used, well-loved and replenished regularly with great reads (and not bad romances. Sorry, romantics. But there’s just so much great writing out there…)
