Every season, Little Free Library stewards blow us away with their creative decor and holiday celebrations, and this year is no exception! Decorating your Little Free Library to celebrate different holidays and seasons, as well as offering seasonal reads, is a great way to keep your community interested and engaged. From skeletons to spiders, these seven libraries are decked-out and ready for fall.

A pair of spooky friends paused to enjoy a good book at charter #70009 in Richmond, VA.

Jennifer Anthony, steward of Little Free Library charter #83843, decorated and lit up her boxcar library to celebrate Halloween and Diwali.

Charter #79263 in St. Hedwig, TX, sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 539, hosted a Trunk or Treat event to share books and candy with the community.

A friendly spider found a good read at charter #81584 in Chula Vista, CA.

In Austin, TX, charter #66887 is welcoming “fall” with colorful leaves and a skeleton friend.

Charter #80006 in Mounds View, MN has it all: leaves (real and faux!), caution tape, lights, and grinning jack-o-lanterns.

Furry friends joined the stewards of charter #93754 and the trick-or-treaters who visited for their Halloween celebration.

Beyond sprucing up your book-sharing box for the holidays, many stewards also enjoy giving away books and bookmarks instead of (or in addition to) sweet treats! There are endless possibilities for incorporating your little library into community celebrations, and increased foot traffic is a great way to get friends old and new excited about reading. Whether you’re sharing books or treats this year, remember to share your photos with us on social media using the hashtag #sharebooks.

For even more decor and activity inspiration, join our Little Free Library Stewards group on Facebook! Stewards use this group to share photos, ideas, tips, and access exclusive steward-only giveaways.

If you want more people to visit your Little Library, we hope you’ll give one of these activities a try!
