Little Free Library

Little Free Library in
Southwestern Outer Drive

A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. They 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.

As of November 2016, there where over 50,000 registered Little Free Library book exchanges in all 50 U.S. states and over 70 countries around the world. And we're lucky enough to have two right in our neighborhood!!

Harvard Square Branch

Lexys Lamp Memorial

Good Shepherd United Methodist Church
(Btw May St. & Mason St.)

Lexys Lamp was diagnosed with DIPG three weeks after beginning kindergarten at DuVall. The library was dedicated on August 28, 2016, the day after she would have turned 7.

There are also near by locations in the Snow Woods neighborhood, the John D. Dingell Transit Center, and Dearborn Heights.

Anyone may contribute or take books. The more the merrier! If you take a book (or two) from a Library, you do not need to return that exact book. However, in order to keep the Little Library full of good choices for the whole neighborhood, the next time you swing by the Library bring a few books to share. Little Library book exchanges function on the honor system; everyone contributes to ensure there are always quality books inside. This way, we all win!

If you want to give a few books, simply put them in a Little Free Library book exchange
