Need a free library in your neighborhood? No problem.

January 4, 2012

Here’s a cool project you can do with kids in your neighborhood. Founders Tod Bol, Rick Brooks, and the rest of the folks at Little Free Library are building, well, little free libraries! Inspired by Andrew Carnegie, who helped build 2,509 libraries around the world, Little Free Library plans to build 2,510 small, free lending libraries for public use. As you can see in the photo above, these libraries are custom-built to be mounted on posts and placed just about anywhere.

Our Mission 

  • To promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide.
  • To build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations.
  • To build more than 2,510 libraries around the world–more than Andrew Carnegie!

Find out more about how to buy a Little Free Library for your community. Or, even better, join the Neighborhood Library Builders Guild on Facebook and build one with the kids in your community. They you can talk with them about how to keep it packed with great books year ’round.
