Book Opportunities Just for Registered Stewards

For these opportunities, you must have a registered Little Free Library with an official charter number. Not a registered steward? Learn about registration.

Half Price Books in Wisconsin and Minnesota – Ongoing

Registered Library stewards can get 10% off any books you purchase from Half Price Books stores in Minnesota and Wisconsin. To get the discount, let the checkout person know you are a Little Free Library steward (and be prepared to provide your charter number, too).

Deeply Discounted Books from First BookOngoing

First Book is an international nonprofit that provides access to free and deeply discounted new books for those who work with children from low-income families. Registered stewards whose patrons are at least 70% children from low-income families are eligible to create an account and shop on the First Book Marketplace. Learn more about First Book participation on our website or visit First Book’s registration page.
