Who doesn’t love a Little Free Library? The vandal who set one on fire

Who doesn’t love a Little Free Library? The vandal who set one on fire – LA Times.

“Police in Denver are looking for a vandal who set fire to a Little Free Library in the city’s Congress Park neighborhood.

“The fire was set early Monday morning, the Denver Post reported, causing heavy damage to the small community book exchange where residents and passersby can take and leave books for free. Dan Wisdom, who set up the library, told Denver’s 9News that there were 35 to 40 books in the structure, most of which were destroyed.”

I wish some tall tree near the library hid a web cam to see what kind of sub-human person would torch a wooden box with a door on it containing free books. Apparently not.

Unless the sociopath who did this pushes his/her luck and goes from town to town doing this, we’ll probably never have a suspect or a reason why it happened. What a shame.
