Little Free Libraries

 Little Free Libraries are very popular with families because of their placement along walking paths and sidewalks close to home. The concept is "Take a Book, Leave a Book" and so the rotation of books and choices is nearly constant. Volunteer stewards help oversee the collections and answer any questions book donors or neighborhoods may have.

Project Details

  • Little Free Libraries can be purchased from LittleFreeLibrary.org or built by volunteers.
  • Little Free Libraries are conveniently placed in areas of high pedestrian and bicycle traffic.
  • Residents donate books they have finished reading, and pick up new books they have yet to explore.

Outcomes

The first Little Free Libraries in Montgomery have been amazing successes with both young and old. Hundreds of books have been circulated and re-read thanks to sharing and caring families.
