Little Free Libraries Comes to Illinois

February 20, 2014

If you have come across a little box or structure that houses books you can take, then you are looking at a Little Free Library.  In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share.  It's also so much more:  a "take a book, return a book" gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories.  Is your institution (public, academic, or school library) involved in a project to bring Little Free Libraries to your community?  If so, please contact Lauren Collen at We want to feature you and/or your library's community engagement projects with the Little Free Libraries in the June issue of the ILA Reporter.
