Little Free Libraries

What is a Little Free Library?

It’s a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbours share their favourite books and literature. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone can stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share.
