Little Free Library 

"Reading matters and together, we can make a difference."

Durham Great Bay Rotary Club is passionate about promoting literacy.  To further our goal of promoting literacy, we introduce the Little Free Library Project. 

Why Little Free Libraries?  

Benefits of this program include providing kids, UNH Students, businesses and local residents books to engage in reading more.

As it states on the Little Free Library website the impact can increase visibility within the community while making a contribution to book access.

Great way to promote literacy and have it woven within the fabric of our local community.

A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share. Little Free Library book exchanges have a unique, personal touch. There is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community; Little Libraries have been called “mini-town squares.”

How can you make a difference?

We are looking for Business owners or individuals who may want to sponsor, become a steward, or host and maintain a location for a Little Free Library.

We are looking for books for donations.

Do you have enough space?

They come in many shapes and sizes, but the most common version is a small wooden box of books.
Libraries can be as small as a bird house up to as big as a sitting bench that you can purchase or we can make.
Every Little Free Library we set up will have the option be registered to the World Map on this site; https://littlefreelibrary.secure.force.com/mapPage
