Little Free Libraries

Sponsor a Little Free Library in Coral Gables

To inspire the love of reading, the Community Recreation Department is installing Little Free Libraries at some 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. 

Bring people together and promote a community of readers!
By sponsoring a Free Little Library you or your organization will have the opportunity to join the City of Coral Gables in developing a system of Little Free Libraries within the existing parks system and start a neighborhood movement to share books.
