What is a Little Free Library?
It’s a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite books. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of literature and stories where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share. There are tens of thousands of Little Free Libraries throughout the world. For more information on the Little Free Library movement, as well as useful information for designing one, see
