A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. They come in many shapes and sizes, but the most common version is a small wooden box of books. Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share.
Little Free Library book exchanges have a unique, personal touch. There is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community; Little Libraries have been called “mini-town squares.” We have our own Little Free Library right here in our neighborhood. It is located next to the Pool House entrance near the neighborhood pool.
How can I donate books?
If you want to give a few books, simply put them in a Little Free Library book exchange near you.
Can anyone give or take books from any Little Free Library? Do I have to return the exact book I take?
Yes, anyone may contribute or take books. The more the merrier! If you take a book (or two) from a Library, you do not need to return that exact book. However, in order to keep the Little Library full of good choices for the whole neighborhood, the next time you swing by the Library bring a few books to share. Little Library book exchanges function on the honor system; everyone contributes to ensure there are always quality books inside. This way, we all win!
