Little Free Libraries

Little Free Libraries are just that - Libraries that are Little and Free! I found eight of them around Edmonds, and there are many more in the surrounding communities. They are neighborhood book exchanges where you can find books and leave books for others. The idea was started in 2009 in Hudson, Wisconsin, by Todd Bol.


More about Little Free Libraries can be found at their official website, http://littlefreelibrary.org. The history and information about setting up your own Little Free Library is also there. I am hoping to build one to put in my front yard.

Each "official" Little Free Library is registered with Little Free Library, Ltd., and displays the charter sign, showing the official registration number, which looks something like this:

The Little Free Library site apparently has some sort of database problem, and their information is currently a bit dated. I found a list of Libraries in Edmonds at the LibraryThing website: Edmonds Little Free Libraries.

What follows are photos of the Little Free Libraries I have found around Edmonds.
