Jason Weisberger writes about a San Francisco Little Free Library that was targeted by some vandals. This is, of course, outrageous and I'm glad they keep putting the Library back up.

However, I have noticed that we've seen a flood of Little Free Libraries in Seattle over the last year and a half, and I must say that the quality of books in those libraries has markedly decreased, with a lot of magazines, hopelessly battered paperbacks and dated technical books popping up all around town.

I think, and I do not have any data to back this up, the problem is that perhaps there are too many Little Free Libraries in Seattle? The quantity of Libraries is perhaps finally outstripping the quality of their stock.

I'd invite anyone considering launching a Little Free Library of their own to investigate the situation in their neighborhood — if there's another Library five or six blocks away from your home, maybe you should just work as hard as you can to contribute to the pre-existing one? After all, as Cienna Madrid pointed out back in February, it takes a community to raise a Little Free Library.
