Little Free Libraries are small neighborhood book exchange structures that can be placed throughout communities to allow for anyone, but particularly students, to have access to books closer to home. They will provide access to books across San Diego and particularly in low-income communities and communities of color, reducing the gap for students that lack access to transportation to visit a physical library building or with connectivity challenges at home.
Managed at large by the Little Free Library non-profit organization, the system is based on a GIS system that maps and promotes over 50,000 neighborhood structures across the nation. San Diego County Library, in partnership with the San Diego Council on Literacy, other public library jurisdictions in the region, and our collective Friends of the Library groups is ready to implement and work with local non-profits and volunteer groups with no costs to our General Fund or additional staff years. The "Little Libraries initiative" from the County is a physical neighborhood approach to book access.
