Little Free Library Big Book Access

Millions of children lack books in their homes or cannot access books elsewhere. Their school libraries have been shut down, they live too far away from public libraries and their families cannot afford to buy books, which average $10 a piece. For many families, taking care of basic needs will always win over buying books.

Little Free Library® helps solve this problem, and we can do more with your help and pledge today. 96% of Little Free Library's expenses are covered through the sales of our products. We are a social enterprise non-profit. Hence, nearly every cent raised from this campaign will help us:

  • Install hundreds more Little Free Libraries that 'kick start" brighter futures for thousands of children through the power of literacy,
  • Water book deserts - rural or urban areas where books are difficult to access or afford,
  • Help teachers provide books to their students that they can take home to enjoy and build their reading skills during summer and year-round,
  • Provide police departments with Libraries of Understanding that will help them engage with youths and encourage them to read.
  • Positively impact at least 100 communities through the power of reading.
