Little Free Libraries

Take a book, leave a book!

Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to inspire a love of reading, bring together communities, and spark creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world. Through Little Free Libraries, millions of books are exchanged each year, profoundly increasing access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds.

Our Little Free Library is registered with the Little Free Library organization as an official book exchange. You can find our Spafford Little Free Library on their world map at LittleFreeLibrary.org along with many others!

What is a Little Free Library?

A Little Free Library is a community book exchange box. It belongs to everyone, and everyone is free to use it! The motto of Little Free Libraries is “take a book – return a book.” Visitors are encouraged to take books home to enjoy. All the books are free and there is nothing to sign-up for and no strings attached. It is up to everyone to keep Little Free Libraries full! Visitors and volunteers are asked to bring books to leave in the Little Free Library so that someone else can enjoy a good read!

Spafford Little Free Library

The Spafford Little Free Library was installed in June of 2018 by the Skaneateles Library. This Little Free Library was painted and sponsored by a local Skaneateles high student in honor of her parents for their years of support.
