Registered libraries have an official charter sign and charter number. If you buy a Little Free Library from our online store, it will automatically come registered with a charter sign included. If you build your own book-sharing box, you may register it by purchasing a charter sign. Your charter sign will be printed with a unique charter number that identifies your book-sharing box as a registered Little Free Library.
Your charter number also grants you, as the library steward, access to a network of benefits just for registered stewards! One popular benefit is the ability to set up a steward account and list your library’s location on Little Free Library’s app and web map.
Set Up Your Steward Account
After you purchase your Little Free Library or charter sign, within a few days you will receive an email with a link to set up your steward account. Choose your username and password, verify your email address, and you’re ready to go!
Once your account is set up, you can log in to the Little Free Library app or steward web portal and enter all of your library’s details. Push your library’s location live on the map whenever you’re ready! Take advantage of other interactive features in your steward account like enabling a guest book for your visitors; posting announcements; linking to your social media pages; and much more!
