Need help keeping your Little Free Library stocked? Looking for affordable books? Start with the Steward Book Directory, which lists opportunities exclusively for stewards to receive free books from individuals and organizations worldwide. Then check out these Book Opportunities, which include monthly giveaways and options to shop for deeply discounted books. One great option is Interstate Books4School, our partner that offers deeply discounted books (starting at $1 per book!) to all LFL supporters.

Join our Steward Services Manager for open office hours! Have questions on steward-related topics, or how to get started as a Little Free Library steward? Come chat! This will be an open drop-in session, so come and get your questions answered or hear what other stewards are wondering about. Office hours are held on every second Tuesday of the month. Register today for the next session on August 13, 4-5 p.m. CST! 

Find out if Your Little Free Library Is Mapped

One common misconception is that we automatically put your Little Free Library on our map when you buy it or register it. We don’t! Only you know your library’s installed location and only you can give consent to share information like your address, name, and email on a public-facing map. That’s why we give your library a Map Status of Pending by default. Not sure if your library is mapped? Use the Library Lookup Tool to quickly find out!
