A Little Free Library is a small, publicly accessible structure that holds a collection of books available for anyone to take, borrow, or exchange. It operates on the principle of "take a book, return a book," encouraging community members to share their favorite reads and discover new ones.
Little Free Libraries were placed in neighborhoods, parks, or public spaces, promoting literacy, community engagement, and a sense of connection among people. These miniature libraries were painted by LOCAL Gloucester County artists and will be maintained by volunteers, community members, or community organizations (and some help from Gill Memorial Library) to encourage reading and foster a spirit of sharing and learning.
