Take a book/ Share a book

Little Free Library is a non-profit organization that supports the worldwide movement to offer free books housed in small containers to members of the local community. The organization is based in Hudson Wisconsin. Little Free Libraries are also referred to as community book exchanges, neighborhood book exchanges, book trading posts, pop-up libraries, and micro-libraries, and have been likened to human bird feeders

How Does This Library Work?

The Little Free Library offers a way to share good things to read—favorite books from your childhood or books you would recommend to friends; books that teach, intrigue and engage you.  All of us can help by keeping this collection stocked with good reading material.

Whose library is this?  It belongs to everybody — neighbors, friends, and people we don’t even know yet.  Anyone can use it.  That’s why we want to take care of it.

Take a book. If you see something you would like to read, take it.  Look inside and see who gave it; who else has read it.  

 Share it. Return it to any Little Library or pass it on to a friend. 

Give books. Leave notes in them.  Be a friend of all libraries by helping any way you can. Pay it Forward!

We support reading for children, literacy for adults, and libraries around the world.
