To inspire the love of reading, the Community Recreation department is installing Little Free Libraries at some of our city parks. Take a book or leave a book at any of these parks. The Little Free Library is a global literacy movement with 100,000 registered mini-libraries in all 50 states and 108 countries around the globe. To date, more than 120 million books have been shared through this program.
You can find Little Free Libraries at these parks in Coral Gables:
- Catalonia Park
- Majorca Park
- Coral Gables Merrick House
- Rotary Centennial Park
- War Memorial Youth Center
