By Sarah Nelson

One of Little Free Library’s core values is transparency. As a nonprofit organization, we strive to be open and honest with our supporters about how we manage our assets. An important part of this is sharing our financial audit information with you. Our independent auditors have completed the review of Little Free Library’s 2022 financials and verified the following:

Little Free Library is proud to have received a GreatNonprofits 2023 Top-Rated Nonprofit award and a Platinum Transparency 2023 award from Candid.
