Found on Foot - #2



Walking allows for a pace that can lead to discovery.  Found on Foot this week is a small neighborhood lending library and sharing space.  Zipping by, at 30 mph, this charming find would have been missed.  













If you would like to visit this lending library it is located at 24th and Barton, Nashville TN


If you find interesting things on foot…please share them here!
