Bloomington - Normal, IL Little Free Library Guide

Take a book or leave a book... or both!

April 20, 2021

Our family reads A LOT of books. In fact, we find ourselves exploring our local library and book stores often to keep up with our demand for new and exciting stories. There are moments, however, that I find myself struggling to return books on time, and purchasing several new books at a time can add up quickly. Solution? Visit a Little Free Library during those busy phases.

What is a Little Free Library? 

Back in 2009, Todd Bol started the idea as a memorial tribute to his mother, who was a school teacher and had a passion for reading. He built a model of a little schoolhouse and put it in his yard. Todd filled the model schoolhouse with books, and neighbors would come and take books for free and leave others for people to borrow. The concept evolved into Little Free Libraries.
