The Little Free Library Movement

Little Free Library

The first Little Free Library has come to Bellevue (see map).  If you hurry, you can grab the copy of Sense and Sensibility I left there.  The Little Free Library movement seeks to:

  • Promote literacy and the love of reading
  • Build a sense of community
  • Build more libraries (albeit little ones) than Andrew Carnegie!

A Little Free Library is a book borrowing box placed on private property and stocked by the owner.  Visitors are welcome to take a book and return it later or trade a book.  The boxes are unattended and run on the honor system.  You can't really steal from a Little Free Library, since the books are free.
