The Little Free Library nonprofit is asking people to remember their founder Todd Bol.
Bol died yesterday from cancer. He originated the idea of the Little Free Library in 2009 with a dollhouse-sized case in the shape of a one-room school house made from a recycled garage. He filled it with books and set it up at the end of his driveway, where he noticed it was more popular than the garage sale items that attracted people to his house. More than 75-thousand Little Free Libraries are now located in nearly 90 countries. Bol was 62.
