Duboce Triangle is getting a new library tomorrow, albeit a very little one.

It's the newest branch of the Little Free Library, a concept that began with a single mini library in Wisconsin in 2009 and has since spread to over 15,000 locations around the world.

Passersby are welcome to stop by and take a book, then return it when they are done.  They may also contribute a book of their own.  The small collection depends on the honor system; no money is exchanged, and no library cards are required.  

According to Little Free Library's website, there are two other outposts in San Francisco 
– one in the Outer Mission, and one in Sea Cliff.  The Duboce Triangle version will be located near 221 Noe Street, between 15th and Market (home of the ever-changing  Noe So Cute lemonade stand).  

 (Sunday) at 11am, the library will make its debut with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.  There will be free coffee for adults and balloon animals for the kids.  If you attend, just be sure to bring a book to help get the collection started.
