REAL Little Library Campaign

Little Free Libraries

A Little Free Library® is a free book exchange. They come in many shapes and sizes, but the most common version is a small wooden box of books. Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share. Little Free Library book exchanges have a unique, personal touch. There is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community; Little Libraries have been called “mini-town squares.”

   The REAL version of Little Free Libraries is one where people can take books and they do not have to return them. We do hope that they read them! People can return books or replace with other books but it is not a requirement. We simply want to help people get books and read!

Give 'em, get 'em, read 'em!

We have collected and distributed over 300,000 quality children's books to the Lynn community and over 15,000 to the Gloucester community. We distribute books through our REAL Little Libraries, pantries, waiting rooms, schools and childcare programs.

   If you need books, would like to donate quality books or volunteer to distribute books to our REAL Little Libraries in Lynn, click below!
