What Are Little Free Libraries?

Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization based out of St. Paul, Minnesota. Their mission is "to be a catalyst for building community, inspiring readers, and expanding book access for all through a global network of volunteer-led Little Free Library book-exchange boxes."

They dream of a book-exchange box in every community and a book for every reader. They believe "all people are empowered when the opportunity to discover a personally relevant book to read is not limited by time, space, or privilege."

Little Free Libraries are created by individuals, organizations and occasional businesses. Those who create them are then called "stewards."


These library boxes can be accessed 24/7 by members those who live in communities or those just passing through, and books can be borrowed and returned or kept.


Anyone can add books to a Little Free Library at any time, but please note, some are just for kids and others are for adults and children alike!
