Little Free Libraries aren’t just for residential neighborhoods anymore. Mack Hardware in downtown Mission has joined the movement with a new LFL in front of the store on Johnson Drive.

Kelly Mack said he was inspired by seeing the other LFLs going up in the neighborhoods and decided the sidewalk in front of his store on Johnson Drive would be a good place for a new LFL because of the foot traffic in front of the store. The rebuild of Johnson Drive with its new sidewalks and new landscaping made this spring the right time.

Since the Mack Hardware LFL has been open, customers and other passers-by have filled the LFL with books. Mack said he has seen lots of people using the library by taking or leaving books.
