Little Free Library FAQs
No, you do not! If you bought a Little Free Library through our online store, your library is automatically registered. A charter sign is included with your purchase, though it may ship separately. All you need to do is wait for your library and charter sign to arrive and then set up your steward account to add your library’s location to the mobile app and web map.
Yes, absolutely! When you register by purchasing a charter sign, you will receive an email prompting you to set up your steward account within 72 hours. If you are not the steward, forward that email on to the person who will be the steward. Alternatively, you can set up your steward account then choose to transfer the library to the actual steward.
Starting a Library
There is no “right time” to register and purchase a charter sign. If you know you are going to build your own library, then we recommend registering right away. That way, you will have your charter sign ahead of time. You can add it to your library whenever you are ready. Remember, libraries purchased through our website automatically include a charter sign.
Little Free Library Map
If you find a library and it is not on the Little Free Library app or web map, then it may not be registered with our organization. We may not know it exists. Approach the nearest home or business and ask to talk the library caretaker. Encourage him/her to register and get an official charter sign and number.
