BOOKS ON THE METRO / LOS ANGELES, CA
Viel on starting Books on the Metro, LA
My name is Viel and I came across the Books On The Move Global movement in February 2017. I am a frequent commuter and lover of books. Aside from Books on the Metro LA, I am also a library steward of a little free library in Chino, California called The Bicycling Bunny Little Free Library. I believe in the inherent goodness in sharing knowledge & promoting literacy
Los Angeles is such a car congested sprawl of cities and surrounding suburbs encompassing Southern California but yet there is a significant number of commuters... most of us trying to avoid the traffic. One of the ways I keep myself occupied is reading a book and I was just enchanted with the movement... such a great way to share the books we love on mass public transit. I'd like to think that while we have a great public library system, its always a good thing to have more books circulating in more ways than one.
So, I started Books on the Metro LA last May 2017 and since then we've gotten such a great response.
