You can find locations of Little Free Libraries here: https://littlefreelibrary.org/ourmap/. And PaperbackSwap is another great site for locating books. You swap with other members (you pay to mail a book someone else wasnts, then you can select a book you want. (Normal reading size books can ship for $2.75-$3.50). You can also keep a wish list for desired titles.
