We can’t think of a better family-friendly social distancing activity than discovering your next book within walking distance of home. In a grassroots movement to get free books in the hands of friends and neighbors, more than 60 people in Mobile and Baldwin counties have built and registered their libraries online to be searchable and mappable. Here are some of our favorites.
How it All Works
A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. The libraries come in many shapes and sizes, and anyone may take a book or bring a book to share. The goal is to inspire a love of reading while building community. Millions of books are exchanged each year, profoundly increasing access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds, but most importantly in areas where books are scarce.
