About Little Free Library

Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization based in St. Paul, Minnesota. Our mission is to be a catalyst for building community, inspiring readers, and expanding book access for all through a global network of volunteer-led Little Free Library book-exchange boxes.

Our vision is a Little Free Library in every community and a book for every reader. We believe all people are empowered when the opportunity to discover a personally relevant book to read is not limited by time, space, or privilege. To learn more, visit

ThriftBooks could not be more proud to help support Little Free Library. Over the next year, ThriftBooks will donate more than 10,000 books to Little Free Library, as well as funds to help set up brand new Little Free Libraries across the country, including many new Impact Libraries, which focus on communities where books are scarce and needed the most.

This year, we are the sponsor of the Little Free Library Week Photo Contest, an initiative that gets people sharing books directly with their community.

Join the Photo Contest

Little Libraries, Big Heroes

Todd and his friends love heroes. But in school, Todd doesn't feel heroic. Reading is hard for him, and he gets scolded for asking too many questions. How will he ever become the kind of hero he admires? Featuring stunning illustrations that celebrate the diversity of the Little Free Library movement, here is the story of how its founder, Todd Bol, became a literacy superhero. Thanks to Todd and thousands of volunteers--many of whom are kids--millions of books have been enjoyed around the world. This creative movement inspires a love of reading, strengthens communities, and provides meeting places where new friendships, ideas--and heroes!--spring to life.
