With more than 25,000 locations worldwide all hungry for books, we’re celebrating our 3rd anniversary as a non-profit on May 16th with the Little Free Library Worldwide Book Drive for children’s, teen and young adult books.
It’s Easy To Participate
Start by spreading the word online and in person to your friends and family. Click here to download the Worldwide Book Drive graphic to the right.
Then, bring new or gently used kids’ books to your friendly neighborhood Little Free Libraries this Saturday, May 16th or whenever you are able. Just place them inside or near the LFLs if they are full. Hopefully their stewards will be there so you can say “hi”.

Share Your #givebooks Experience
While you’re at it, have some fun! Snap a photo of yourself dropping off books and post it with #givebooks on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. We’ll be looking for your posts and randomly selecting winners to get LFL swag and brand new books to stock your Little Library like Share or Die from our friends at Shareable!
Why Kids’ Books?
Books for children, teens and young adults are always needed and welcome at Little Free Libraries especially before summer break. Teachers believe Little Free Libraries can help curb the summer slide, when students can lose up to two-months of language proficiency during summer vacation.
