Little Free Libraries in Northwest Arkansas

Little Free Library Northwest Arkansas


A few months ago I discovered a Little Free Library at War Eagle Mill in Rogers. I was so excited because i'd never seen one before, but have always wanted to find one. In case you are unfamiliar, a Little Free Library is a "take a book, return a book" free book exchange. They are all unique, but the basic idea is a small wooden box of books in which anyone can take a book or leave a book for all to share. The big idea is to promote literacy and the love of reading while at the same time building a sense of community. It is such a wonderful program and concept!

 

Little Free Library Stewards are people who have either built their own Little Free Library Boxes or have bought a box kit from Little Free Library, Ltd. A Steward must place the LFL in a safe and legal area (based on zoning laws) and then boxes built by the stewards themselves must be registered through Littlefreelibrary.org. Then the LFL is added to the world map and available to the public. 

After I'd found the one at War Eagle Mill, I wondered if we had any more in the Northwest Arkansas area. I went to www.littlefreelibrary.org and discovered their world map in which you can search your area for a LFL near you. I discovered that we currently have close to 30 Little Free Libraries in the Northwest Arkansas Area! 

My birthday followed soon after and when my husband asked what I wanted to do I told him I wanted to find some of the Little Free Libraries in the Benton County area and fill them with some of our own books that the kids weren't reading anymore. We had a lot of fun on our LFL hunt and the boys found a few new books to take home!

Here are the Little Free Libraries we visited in the Benton County Area.
