LITTLE FREE LIBRARY
Welcome to the world’s largest book-sharing movement!
Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that builds community by inspiring readers and expanding book access for all, through a global network of volunteer-led neighborhood libraries.
Studies show that just six minutes of reading per day can reduce stress by up to 68%, slow your heart rate, and improve your overall health. Also, a growing literacy crisis faces the United States today, as more than 30 million adults cannot read or write above a third-grade level. Studies have repeatedly shown that books in the hands of children have a meaningful impact on improving literacy. The more books in or near the home, the more likely a child will learn and love to read, and children who read just 20 minutes a day will more frequently place in the 90th percentile academically. Little Free Library book-sharing boxes play an essential role in communities, providing 24/7 access to books and encouraging a love of reading!
