The free library was in front of a house at 1341 West Granville, Chicago, Illinois (Edgewater neighborhood). Homeowners put them up on their front yards and, as people pass by, they can just take any book that catches their eye. They also have magazines and sometimes even music CDs. They also drop off any books or magazines they have which they no longer need.
Some places have tried something similar with canned food. I’ve yet to see one of those in Chicago and I doubt they would work well here.
I used ACDSee Ultimate 10.4 to crop, adjust the lighting and boost the contrast and vibrance. Then I used Photoshop Elements 13.1 to apply the colorpop effect. I don’t use Elements for much – which is why I’m two releases behind the current one – but it does a great job with colorpop.
