The non-profit Little Free Libraries movement is branching out in new directions including inner-city neighborhoods where kids might not have many books and into developing countries were people are hungry for reading material and by Christmas expects its followers will have erected over 5,000 book boxes across the U.S. alone. Brooks is co-founder of Little Free Libraries. (AP Photo/Jim Mone)
