The Frisco Lending Library

The Frisco Lending Library

Mountain Gazette subscribers are undefeated. Tim from Frisco, Colorado took it upon himself to create a free sidewalk lending library.

Our editor Mike was so excited that he whipped up a list of books and sent all 25 to Tim for the library. The list includes titles from author-subscribers, contributors, banned books, kids books, classics and modern poetry, ski literature and more.

Here's the list. If you're interested in purchasing one please making the purchase locally and support bookstores in your town.
