Little Free Library

is a community-based organization and movement with a mission:

To promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide and to build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations.

The concept is simple: Build small mini-libraries and place them on lawns and public spaces around the world. Provide fun and interesting books for people of all ages to read and share. Take a book, leave a book! It's free!

In 2009, Todd Bol of Hudson, Wisconsin, built the first Little Free Library as a tribute to his mother. She was a teacher who loved to read. Todd filled his miniature library with books and put it on a post in his front yard. It quickly became a neighborhood treasure — a place where adults and children could browse, sit, and read. Others began to build and erect Little Free Libraries, and now the Little Free Library movement is a non-profit organization and global phenomemon, with 40,000 registered Little Free Library book exchanges in all 50 U.S. states and over 70 countries around the world!

Mermaid Galene and Salty Stuart, who reside in Hudson when not out adventuring on/in the High Seas, are delighted to participate in the Little Free Library movement. In May 2016, Galene Press began their campaign to donate Galene's children's books to Little Free Libraries across the country. Later this year, Galene and Salty Stuart will build a Little Free Library Magical Reading Grotto on Punchinello Prairie, their land-based Hudson home.

Reading makes magic!
