What is a Tiny Library or Little Free Library?
Tiny Libraries and Little Free Libraries are all around our community. They serve as a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. They come in many shapes and sizes, but the most common version is a small wooden box of books on a pole that resembles a bird house – but for books! Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share. These libraries serve as a great way to share books your family is finished reading with others. You can drop off a few books at any local library any time. Libraries can feature a variety of genres and books for all ages.
Lexington Public Library has created multiple Tiny Libraries throughout the city. A Tiny Library is a miniature community center for sharing books. It’s right in your neighborhood and it’s free, easy and fun.
Want to help? Donate books to any Lexington Public Library location – or just leave them in one of our Tiny Libraries for others to enjoy! All genres and reading levels are encouraged. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
They have a special map created with the locations for you to reference.
