The tiny little lending library on South Street is back in business after disappearing a few days ago, with the following note inscribed on a plank underneath:
Dear Book Club,
I live in Chicago now. Coming back to this specific Book Club Box brings me much joy. When I saw it was gone, my heart sank deep into thedarkness of the place your soul would be.
I see now the Book Club Box is bigger than I, bigger than all its patrongs, admirers and all other affected bystanders. Thank you for being so strong. So unmoving.
UPDATE: Return of the Free Tiny Library!
