    Anna Berry’s conclusion is this: “Indeed, in a country where 32 million adults can’t read, and the literacy rate hasn’t changed in 10 years, any reasonable solution that addresses illiteracy deserves support.”

    But are these LFLs actually doing anything to reduce illiteracy? The evidence says they aren’t, which leaves me to wonder just how “reasonable” any solution can be that doesn’t actually solve a problem.

      Fair point, Vincent. It will be interesting to follow up on the results of LFL’s (relatively new) Impact Fund, which donates libraries to underserved neighborhoods: https://littlefreelibrary.org/impact-about/
