After you receive your Little Free Library or charter sign, the first thing you’ll want to do is fill out the Add a Little Library to the World Map form to tell us the basic details about your little library.
When you enter the primary steward’s email address on that form, make sure it’s the same email that’s associated with your app account. This is very important in order for the app to be able to connect your library to your account. (Don’t have an app account? Learn how to create one here.)
After you submit the form, a staff member will review it and approve it within 3 business days. You will get a follow-up email when your library has been approved.
With one day of approval, your library should be automatically assigned to your app account. You will see your My Libraries list where you can edit the information about each of your little libraries (if you steward more than one). You can access your steward account from within the Little Free Library mobile app or through your web browser.
After you’ve set up your account, tap My Libraries in the app’s main menu. You should see your little library listed there. Tap on the library to edit its information. Make sure to set its Map Status to Mapped when you are ready for it to appear on the world map. You can manage your library from within the My Libraries section of the app or through the Steward Web Portal.
Still having trouble? Contact us and we can help you set up your steward account and add your little library’s location to the app and web map.
