Little Library

Little Library was born from my curiosity about a lending library I saw on my block. Always hesitant to look inside, I thought there just had to be a better way to offer books to people. After researching and interviewing, my hypothesis that browsing online and GPS locating would increase usage was supported. I also realized that rather than reinventing the depositories it made sense to leverage the existing infrastructure of all these lending libraries already in place with “stewards” already tending to the contents. This first phase addresses a single user flow of finding a library close by and selecting a book based on reviews and description. I even added a “recommend” to the end of the flow.
