    Little Free Libraries

    “Take a book. Leave a book.” Lynchburg Parks & Recreation and the Lynchburg Public Library are joining forces to help promote literacy and the love of reading in Lynchburg with the placement of three Little Free Libraries throughout the city. Little Free Libraries (LFLs) are a community movement offering free books housed in hand-made, freestanding structures to members of the local community. The books they house can be taken or borrowed by anyone with an interest in learning.  

    The Natural Bridge Appalachian Trail Club has volunteered to build our first LFLs which will be located at: Riverside Park, Lynchburg Community Market, and the Ed Page entrance of the Blackwater Creek Bikeway.

    With the LFLs in place, we hope members of the Lynchburg community will take action and spread the literary love. Any individual or organization can start a LFL and each box can be unique, allowing volunteers to create a custom, personalized design. Help your community share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations. Visit the website to find out more and get involved!

    Participate as a Little Free Library Steward!

    The Little Free Library stewards will monitor each library location and add books as needed. The "take a book, return a book" motto encourages the public to borrow a book and return it or bring a book and take a book. This service is to help promote literacy and the love of reading in Lynchburg.  If you are interested in becoming a Steward, please contact the Libary Volunteer Coordinator at (434) 455-6306.
