What is a Little Free Library?

It's a take a book, return a book gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories.

In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop
by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share. You can too!

We invite you to bring a book you enjoyed to share with neighbors and to borrow a book from
this Little Free Library as often as you like. You don't need a library card and there is no cost.

Now open so take a book, return a book.

Happy reading!
