ENGLEWOOD, N.J. — Friends of the Englewood Library is seeking to expand the borough's Tiny Free Library (TFL) program to include more locations where people can borrow books to read.

TFL is a freestanding, oversized mailbox that opened last August on the corner of Dean Drive and Demarest Avenue. Readers can take or leave books under the honor system.

"The response to the TFL has been so wonderful that we thought there should be more of them," Nacht told Daily Voice. "People are coming by daily to exchange books. It has been a great success."

The group will host a public meeting on Thursday, March 10 at 5 p.m. in the library's programming room to recruit more organizations to open up TFL "branches."

Nacht encourages community groups, schools, church organizations and other local groups to come to the meeting and learn how to set up their own TIny Free Library.

EMAIL Nacht for more information.
