Little Free Library’s Sharing-Box Map
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many Little Free Library stewards have converted their little libraries into places to share food, personal care or household items. In an effort to help individuals and families in need find these locations, we invited stewards to add their sharing-box locations to the map below. Click on any pin on the map to reveal more information.
Please note this map does not replace the standard Little Free Library world map. This is a temporary additional resource that we will update several times per week until it is no longer needed.

Please note that your sharing box does not need to be a registered Little Free Library in order to be on this map. This map is open to anyone offering food, household items, or crafts in a sharing box in their neighborhood.
