Five Easy Steps
to a Little Free Library
in Your Neighborhood
1. Identify a location and steward.
2. Decide if you want to:
4. Build Support
Keep your Little Library full of books. Protect it. Enjoy it. Feel great!
P.S. Always support your public and school libraries!
Your Group Can Benefit
Members of Wisconsin Literacy have set the pace by realizing that supporting a Little Library can help promote their activities as well. We encourage them--and you--to include information on tutoring and literacy in every Little Library they support.
Need something to excite your members and keep them engaged? Each Library can serve as a distribution point for your information; clues for treasure hunts and competitions, answers to questions...and great reading!
Each Library Needs a Steward
Stewards are the lifeblood of the Little Free Library movement. They are what make the difference between just a box of books and a Little Free Library that is valued and protected.
As a Steward you will be able to choose a Library and locate it on your property, buy it, or help raise funds by sending neighbors and friends to a designated online site to be co-sponsors.
Most important, you are the contact person for that Library. Your name and contact information goes on the listing on the Little Free Library Map of the World. You help make sure that it is safe, has lots of good books coming and going, and takes advantage of the Little Free Library network of like-minded people. Your role is not to do everything, but to help find neighbors and friends who will see the Library as a service to everyone...their family, visitors and the community as a whole.
