Little Free Libraries

Have you ever gone geocaching? It's basically like modern treasure hunting. You find hidden treasure in a specified location and once you find it, you can take a piece of the treasure and you leave something for the next person to find. Well our Little Free Libraries are similar, except they're not hidden. Actually, they're pretty easy to find. They function the same way as a geocache though. Just find one of our Little Free Libraries in any of the locations below and take a book and leave a book. Little Free Libraries are an excellent opportunity for us to expand outside of our 9 locations and still offer resources to other areas of the community and different audiences.

Resources and fun for teens, families, and educators.
