Where to Find Little Free Libraries in Marshfield

Neighborhood Libraries Provide Free Book Exchanges

Take a book, leave a book: This is the thought behind the Little Free Libraries, bringing literacy into the heart of neighborhoods.

The concept is simple: install a box in the front yard or on a walking trail, and fill it with books. Passerby can remove a book for free and leave their own, thus beginning a book exchange and creating a community of book sharers and readers.

The first Little Free Library was installed in 2009 in Hudson, WI as a small replica of a one room schoolhouse, and the idea continued to multiply from there. Today, there are over 60,000 registered libraries in 80 countries.

Plenty of Little Free Libraries can be found right here in Marshfield, and more continue to be installed by community members passionate about sharing the love of reading with their neighbors. A map of locations can be found at this link, but not all libraries are registered. Here is our list, and click the links to read our interviews with some of the innovative people behind them.
