Little Free Library



What is a Little Free Library?

“It’s a ‘take a book, return a book’ gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share. You can, too!”

What’s so special about having an official Little Free Library?

“If this were just about providing free books on a shelf, the whole idea might disappear after a few months. Little Free Libraries have a unique, personal touch and there is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community. These aren’t just any old books, this is a carefully curated collection and the Library itself is a piece of neighborhood art!”

Who can take books from a Little Free Library?

Anyone! Little Free Libraries are available to young and old, visitor and resident. We only ask that all users of Little Free Libraries bring back the book once they have read it or replace it with another book/s.

How can I donate books to a Little Free Library?

If you want to give a few books, simply put them in a Little Free Library near you. Little Free Libraries do not accept magazines, brochures, CDs or DVDs.
