Kalamazoo’s Little Free Libraries


This is the website for Kalamazoo’s Little Free Libraries. What is a Little Free Library, you ask? It is a small wooden box that sits on a post, containing books. These books are free! It is a simple idea: anyone can take a book, or leave a book. This project promotes both community and the love of reading! Little Free Libraries are a national project, started in Hudson, Wisconsin.

Little Free Libraries (LFLs) are popping up all over Kalamazoo

and beyond! Be an active part of the cool neighborhood

reading sensation sweeping the nation.



“Books should go where they will be most appreciated, and not sit unread, gathering dust on a forgotten shelf,

don't you agree?”

           -Christopher Paolini

Hayden Lane-Davies

“The more you read, the more things you‘ll know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

-Dr. Seuss


Spring is happening in Kalamazoo! And what better time than Spring to start planting more LFLs? The spring LFL meeting will take place on Tuesday, April 21 at 7 pm at the Encore Magazine Office in downtown Kalamazoo. At the meeting, we will talk about stewarding LFLs, building LFLs and community involvement. Hope you can make it! If you’re coming, please let us know at kalamazoolittlefreelibraries.com.

 I’m Hannah. I first saw the Little Free Library idea in St. Paul, MN and I wanted to bring it to home to share with Kalamazoo. Want to help? Keep reading!
