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!

Just 15 Minutes Of Your Time Every Day Can Change Lives

The non-profit Read Aloud has launched a 10-year campaign to increase the number of parents who read aloud to their children every day. Why is reading aloud so important? How can you get involved? Find out more here.

Making Libraries More Accessible Online

The Libhub Initiative is an exciting new project dedicated to making public libraries and their content more visible on the web. If you do a Google search, Google can’t access information in thousands of public library catalogs…they are still ”dark collections.” But what if all of the rich resources of thousands of public libraries were easy to find online? Pledge your support to Libhub today.
