Attleboro Community Garden Little Free Library

Attleboro Community Garden is proud to be part of the worldwide Little Free Library program. In a previous post  we outlined the start of the construction which was finished construction as Charter #94346 in Fall 2019, by our own gardeners. It stands holding books at the end of the garden with decorative painted flowers.

What Are Little Free Libraries?

Little Free Libraries are small collections of books and magazines for our community to borrow and exchange – completely free of charge! Patrons are welcome to take from and add to our Little Free Libraries. The Little Free Library program is a nonprofit organization with a mission to build community, inspire readers, and expand book access for all through a global free network of small libraries built around trust. Little Free Libraries are a great way to encourage reading, build community, and connect people with books from a community they may not otherwise have access to without other means. Our Community garden has several books on gardening of all skill levels from beginners to advanced, some larger than the little library are available on request.
