Little Free Libraries

Little Free Libraries

The Carmel Clay Public Library is pleased to announce the opening of three Little Free Libraries. What is a Little Free Library? Put simply, a Little Free Library is a box on a post filled with books where anyone can stop by and pick up a book or bring another book to share. As items are borrowed and added, the collection of books is constantly changing with titles for adults, young adults and children.

The concept of Little Free Libraries was started in 2009 by a Rotarian in Wisconsin in memory of his mother. The idea has since spread to most states in the U.S. and over 55 countries throughout the world.
 
The mission of Little Free Libraries is to promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges and to build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations.
