Southwest Tech has embarked on a project to make and place 50 Little Free Libraries in communities within our district.

1 What is it?

It's a "take a book, return a book" free book exchange.

Little Free Libraries are about community connections, just as much as they're about books and literacy.

3 How we need you!

Join us as a community ambassador by supporting and utilizing our Southwest Tech Little Free Libraries throughout our district.

Little Free Libraries come in many shapes and sizes, but the most common version is a small wooden box of books. 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."

Steward information:

The primary role of a Steward is to care for a Little Free Library so that it becomes and continues as a vital and engaging resource for the neighborhood and community.

We encourage you, as a Steward, to:

  • Protect the integrity of the Library itself, its contents and the overall reputation of the Little Free Library movement.
  • Care for your Library by keeping the Library orderly, in good repair, fun and interesting.
  • Promote and inform the community about the project and the exciting Little Free Library movement!
