What is a Free Little Library?

The purpose of a Free Little Library is to encourage and promote reading by providing the local community with access to books.

How do I use the Free Little Library?

The Free Little Library is a book exchange where people can borrow a book, take one or leave suitable books (in good condition) for others to enjoy.

When using it please ensure that you are supervising your child/ren.

Please look after our Free Little Library, after use make sure that the door is closed and if it is a windy day please make sure the catch is in place.

If you have any questions regarding the Free Little Library please contact Miss Whiteley.
