How can I edit my Little Free Library’s information in the app?

Table of Contents

To edit your Little Free Library, log in to your steward account in the Little Free Library app or steward web portal. The app and web portal are synced. If you make a change in the app, that change is immediately reflected in the web portal and vice versa.

App #

Tap the My Library section of the main menu. If you steward more than one little library, you will see a list of all of your little libraries on this screen. Tap on the library you would like to edit.

You now have several options! You can post a temporary announcement or select your library’s Indicators right from this screen. Tap the triple-dot icon in the upper-right of your screen to get the Transfer Library option to appear. Tap Guest Book to enable or disable the Guest Book feature and view past guest book entries. Tap Report Issue to view open and resolved reported issues about your library.

The Edit Library Info section is where you can edit your library’s photos, story, list-as name, address, social media links, and more.

The Map Status field is important! That field must be set to Mapped or your library will not be publicly visible on the app map or web map. If you decide to take your library down permanently, change the Map Status field to Taken Down Permanently to remove it from public view.

Notice you can add a Location Hint if you want to help visitors find your library. This is particularly helpful if your library is inside a building or in a specific spot in a public area. You can also add links to your library’s social media accounts, if you have any.

Web Portal #

You can make all of the same changes in the web portal as you can in the app. In the portal, view the Libraries tab. If you steward more than one little library, you will see a list of all of your little libraries on this screen. Click on the library you would like to edit.

You will see a screen where you can edit all of your library’s information, including its address, GPS coordinates, story, indicators, announcement, and more. Click on the Guest Book tab to enable or disable the Guest Book feature, and approve or deny pending guest book entries. Click on the Issues tab to view open and resolved reported issues about your library. Click on the Photos tab to add or edit library photos.
