Schools and Libraries Save 10% on Little Free Libraries
Schools and Libraries around the country are using Little Free Library book exchanges to inspire a love of reading and to connect neighbors—schools like Dufief Elementary, whose story you can watch in the adjacent video!
Little Libraries complement outreach, service learning, community-building projects, and literacy efforts. And they’re also used to commemorate an individual or event.
There’s so much to learn through reading and anything that we can add to our school to add to that love of reading, such as a Little Free Library, is a great addition … and our whole community will be able to use it!Brent Mascott
Fun and Creativity
Building Little Free Library kits can be a fun activity for library patrons, students, staff, and parents, and can also help connect schools and libraries with their local neighbors. The PBS Kids Design Squad shared a fun video showcasing how they designed, built, and installed a Little Free Library at the Columbus School in Medford, Massachusetts.
Personalizing—such as painting Libraries in school colors or attaching special signage—increases a sense of ownership and offers an opportunity for creative expression. See our video of how to build a kit.
