Little Free Libraries

What is a Little Free Library?

 “A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” 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.”

Often you will find Little Free Libraries outside of people’s homes or outside or schools or businesses. More information at www.littlefreelibrary.org.

In Langley, many of the Little Free Libraries have been designed and built by Carpentry students at Walnut Grove Secondary School, who then generously donate the libraries to the community.

    And don’t forget about the original ‘Little Free Libraries’ in our communities: Fraser Valley Regional Libraries, which are located in 7 locations across Langley, and offer fun and free programming for adults, children, teens and families, as well as free books you can borrow.

    In 2022 We had the students from Langley Senior Secondary Trades Class build some Little Free Libraries to share with community members. It was a great project for them to do and helped to put more books in the hands of the community.
