A Little Free Library is an outdoor cabinet that houses books to take or leave—for free. They have been sprouting up in neighborhoods across the planet. And now you can find one in Frisco.

The Ladybug Little Free Library in the Panther Creek neighborhood is part of a grassroots literacy movement started three years ago in Wisconsin. Now there are about 6,000 such libraries in 36 countries.

CoServ Electric members Marie and Gregory Buggs thought it was a perfect idea for their neighborhood. “We were looking for a community project to work on with our granddaughter,” Marie said.

Gregory built the cabinet, and granddaughter Alexandria Gann, 10, whose nickname is Ladybug, helped pick out its decorations.

“It gets the kids involved. They don’t have to worry about keeping a book so long as they leave one to share,” Marie said.
