Why are some book exchanges missing from this map?

Registered Little Free Library stewards must choose to share their locations on this map. Some stewards do not wish to share their locations on this map, and therefore are not listed. A book exchange must also be registered with an official charter sign and number in order to be displayed on this map; if a book exchange is not registered, it is not eligible to be displayed on this map.

What is a charter sign?

A charter sign is a wooden or aluminum sign that is printed with a unique charter number. You must know your charter number to add your library to the world map and access other benefits of registration. If you built your Library or purchased it from a builder or organization that is not the Little Free Library organization, you will need to register and purchase a charter sign. Here are examples of charter signs.

How do I edit my library's information after it's on the map?

The easiest way to edit your library’s information is to log in to your steward account in the Little Free Library mobile app. Then go to the My Library section and you will be able to edit all of your library details in real time. Don’t have a steward account yet? It’s free to create one! Learn how to set up a steward account as an existing steward.

If you prefer not to set up an account, please fill out the Add/Update your Library on the World Map form to submit an update. Please note that without an account, you will have to resubmit this form every time you wish to make a change. You will also not have access to features such as social media links, location hints, announcements, additional photos, and more.

Why can I only see GPS coordinates for some Little Free Libraries?

Each steward chooses how much contact information they would like to share on the map. If a steward does not choose to share the street address of their Little Free Library on the world map, then only GPS coordinates will appear.

Can I open the map in a larger window?

Yes, you can! There is a link directly below the map or open the Little Free Library world map in a larger window.
