Small But Mighty: Little Free Libraries We Love

We love a good library. We adore large public libraries, and we also have a special place in our hearts for Little Free Libraries: small libraries where visitors can take a book and leave a book, thus circulating free reading material to a local book community. Plus visiting one is a safe and socially distant activity. Get inspired by these adorable LFLs, and check out the Little Free Library site for a map of official LFLs or ask local bookworms using your NextDoor app to find any independently created ones!
