Three Simple Steps to Start a Library
Step 1: Pick a Good Spot
Select a spot where lots of people will see it, whether that’s your own yard, a public park, or a school. (Hint: make sure you have permission from the property owner!)
Step 2: To build or not?
Purchase a ready-to-install Little Free Library from our online store or buy a Library Kit. Got carpentry skills already? Build your own library from scratch.
Step 3: Install and spread the word
Most people install their libraries on a 4×4″ wooden post. Build your own post or buy one from our online store.
Since installing our Little Free Library, we’ve now met twice as many neighbors than we had in the past year. The library really does bring communities together. We have had such a sweet response from our neighborhood … best gift ever!”Nicole Fliear, steward of Little Free Library #55715
