A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange, typically sponsored by an individual or family. It is housed in a small structure on the owner’s lawn, near a road or sidewalk, where neighbors and visitors may take a book or leave books for others to read. Right now we have six in Pittsford. They’ve been welcomed by neighbors and visitors where they’ve appeared. We also have a Little Free Library shelf, sponsored by the Friends of the Pittsford Community Library, in the Library hallway.
The Little Free Library nonprofit organization supports the worldwide movement to promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges in local communities.
