You figured out how to start a Little Free Library book exchange, and things are going well, but you’ve got a problem: too many books! Many Little Free Library volunteer stewards quickly realize that their neighbors are sharing more books than their library can hold. What can you do?

One option is to add a bookshelf or storage bin to your garage where you can keep excess books. That keeps things tidy and if your little library is ever low on books, you’ll easily be able to refill it.

Another option is to expand your Little Free Library book-sharing box to hold more books. (Some stewards add Mini-Shed libraries as annexes for kids books.) We have lots of Little Free Library plans you could follow to build additional book-sharing boxes. Though if that feels like too big of a project, never fear! We’ve got cheap and creative ways to expand your library below. Hover your mouse or click on any image below to reveal more information.
