What is a Little Free Library?

First, Little Free Library (LFL) is the name of a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that builds community, inspires readers, and expands book access for all.

The organization helps people around the world start and maintain free “take a book, share a book” book exchanges called Little Free Libraries.  LFL grants Little Free Libraries full of books to underserved areas through its Impact Library Program and champions diverse books through its Read in Color initiative.

Little Free Library book-sharing boxes are placed in front yards, housing projects, community centers, schools, parks, gardens, and other easily accessible locations. The Libraries are built to withstand weather of all kinds and hold 20-100 books.

To be officially called a Little Free Library, a free book exchange must be registered with an official charter sign and charter number.

How many Little Free Libraries are there?
As of April 2023, there are more than 150,000 registered Little Free Libraries in all 50 states, all 7 continents, and 120 countries. Please see our map for more information.

The organization:
Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization based in St. Paul, Minnesota. Our mission is to be a catalyst for building community, inspiring readers, and expanding book access for all through a global network of volunteer-led Little Free Libraries. Our vision is a Little Free Library in every community and a book for every reader. We believe all people are empowered when the opportunity to discover a personally relevant book to read is not limited by time, space, or privilege.

The Little Free Library movement:
People worldwide have embraced the idea of Little Free Libraries and in our headquarters, we’re working to strengthen and support them with effective communication channels, programs, events, and partnerships that build on our mission.

How to describe Little Free Library book exchanges:
The correct legal name is three words: Little Free Library. This name is registered with the US Patent and Trademark Office and should be capitalized. Only registered Little Free Library book exchanges may use the title “Little Free Library”; if a book exchange is not registered, it is simply called a book exchange. It is permissible to use the term Little Libraries or just Libraries when referring to any registered Little Free Library book exchange.
