Little Free Library

Take a book, leave a book. These tiny libraries offer a free reading experience to anyone who happens by. 

How does it work?

A wooden box filled with books, a Little Free Library is a mini collection you can browse any time of day. Take home whatever catches your fancy and if you want, bring back one of your own to share with others. 

No library card required. No fines. No need to return what you borrow.
