Little Free Libraries around the UK

As we begin to plan for 2015, we take a look back at some of the LFLs we installed around the UK over the past year.

It is our aim to have installed 100 in total by the end of 2015. Increasing access to books, promoting art and bringing communities together through their love of reading.

Young readers in Birmingham take delivery of their Little Free Libraries

Young readers at Bearwood Primary School in Birmingham quickly start making use of their new Little Free Libraries.

Funded by the Siobhan Dowd Trust, we have created four colourful LFLs especially for children at this wonderful primary school in Birmingham.

Bearwood Primary School is the fourth school in the UK to host a Little Free Library and the first in Birmingham. Three of the Little Free Libraries will provide books just for kids, but one will also contain books for older readers (including parents) when it is installed a local community cafe.

The Siobhan Dowd Trust have funded the project and will also be supplying a wide selection of books for these enthusiastic young students. "We are very grateful to the wonderful Siobhan Dowd Trust and pleased to have worked with them to create this new network of Little Free Libraries in Birmingham." said Nick Cheshire, Director of Little Free Library Project UK.
