Little Free Library Movement

Little Free Library Movement


By now, you’ve probably heard about Little Free Libraries. Maybe you’ve read about them or just seen one pop up in your neighborhood. Whether shaped like a house, a boat, a train, a barn, a phone booth, a VW bus, a school, or countless other designs, Little Free Libraries are becoming fixtures in neighborhoods around the world. In fact, there are now over 25,000 of them in 70 countries.

A new book, appropriately titled The Little Free Library Book, pays tribute to the booming Little Free Library movement, the people behind it, and hundreds of the standout libraries themselves. In the book, author Margret Aldrich goes behind the scenes to find out what inspired the most exceptional Little Free Libraries, how the first Little Free Library came to be, and how the movement has spread so far and fast.

Aldrich also provides a resource guide for aspiring Little Free Library librarians and library users, and over 400 photos to further appreciation of the tiny, neighborhood libraries, and maybe inspire readers to create one of their own.
