LIttle Free Library – There’s a book!

Actually there are THREE books!

The Little Free Library Book (2015) tells the official story of the Little Free Library movement and contains a forward by Todd Bol, the founder of Little Free Libraries, who built the first one in his front yard as a memorial to his mother. This book tells the history of Little Free Libraries, and is a nice resource/reference for anyone who would like to build and install their own Little Free Library. Believe it or not, people have occasionally run afoul of city ordinances when they’ve put these sweet little boxes of free books in their front yards, so it’s good to be prepared.


Little Free Libraries & Tiny Sheds came out this past March. If you want to build and install a Little Free Library of your own, this book seems to give you all the practical info you need to get the project done!


And last but not least, the most recent book is for children and was just released two weeks ago, on September 3rd. Little Libraries, Big Heroes tells the story of Todd Bol and his mom as literacy superheroes.


I’ve written about Little Free Libraries before. Pretty often, in fact. If you’d like to read some of those posts, you can click on the “Little Free Library” bullet point in the list of “Categories” down the right-hand side of this page. Enjoy 🙂
