Little Free Libraries

Building Community

Sparking Creativity

Inspiring Readers




Built by the teens in our 2017 Summer Reading Program, Vail Public Library has planted FIVE little free libraries around Vail and Gypsum.

Little Free Library is a non-profit that aims to inspire a love of reading and spark creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges.  Little Free Libraries 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; there is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community.

Little Libraries are sometimes called “mini-town squares” and thanks to these Little Free Libraries millions of books are exchanged each year by readers of all ages and backgrounds.
