Regular readers of Jamaica Plain News know we follow the neighborhood’s collection of Little Libraries. We recently learned the DIY leave a book/take a book depot at Chestnut Avenue and Paul Gore is gone.

Neighbors have been discussing the disappearance of the hand-made library on a Facebook group for Jamaica Plain.

Let’s hope if someone took it they’ll decide to bring it back.

    I am sorry. But this is not “news”. My bike got stolen. Should you guys write a piece about it?

      Was your bike a popular community resource? If so, then its theft deserves reporting!

    • rainydayinterns

      Were you on it at the time? Did they also take your community spirit?

  • Malena

    this is good news. I bring books up there all the time and take one or two if they interest me. I agree, they are such a gentle, smart, community resource. thank you to all who host them. BTW, this looks like a picture of the one which is between paul gore and forbes – the one that’s been missing is up on the hill towards green st and had a door.
