Little Free Library

Depending on where you live, you may have noticed Little Free Libraries cropping up on lawns around your neighborhood. These small, enclosed bookshelves, often built to look like a miniature, old fashioned library, provide a way for neighbors to easily share books with one another. Little Free Library is a non-profit organization founded in 2009 to facilitate this unique book sharing program. Today, there are over 50,000 Little Free Libraries, and they can be found in all 50 U.S. states and in 70 countries. On this website, visitors can learn about how to use and host a Little Free Library. To see if there is a Little Free Library in your area, check out the Map tab and simply type in your address or zip code. Interested in hosting a library yourself? This website provides a detailed how-to guide for becoming a Little Library Steward, including advice on dealing with zoning laws. In addition, the Little Free Library website also features a blog that highlights Little Free Library stories from around the world. Here, visitors can check unique Little Free Library designs and learn about the work of Girl Scouts across the U.S. in building and promoting Little Free Libraries.
