Little Free Library locations in Jacksonville Beach, Florida

Free Little Libraries in Jacksonville Beach

If you’ve ever been out for a stroll, you may have spotted one of these cute & colorful Free Little Libraries in Jacksonville Beach. They are exactly what they look like, a little library, or more specifically, a Little Free Library. LFLs were originally created to facilitate access to books for diverse groups in a variety of locations. They operate on the honor system, you are welcome to take a book, as well as encouraged to (but not required to) leave a book for others to enjoy. If you start looking around town, you’ll notice that they are located in several areas around Jacksonville, including churches, parks, shops, neighborhoods & shelters. Visiting the Free Little Libraries around Jax and the Beaches is one of our favorite summertime activities.

Get Involved with Little Free Libraries

  1. Print out a map showing little libraries in your area. Visit the different locations and explain to your children how they work (you get to choose a book, then “pay it forward” by sharing a book for others).
  2. Go through your bookshelves and pick out a few books to donate. You could even purchase a few new books to donate. After touring the Little Libraries we noticed that while they generally have a surplus of books for adult readers, they have a minimal supply of children’s books. Many of the books are well-loved, so a refresh would be welcomed.
  3. You can even start a Little Free Library of your very own! Anyone can do so, and the website even includes construction plans. If you’re not the DIY type, you can always buy a premade Little Library Kit. This would be a fantastic service project for a scouting troop, or a unique idea for giving during holiday season.

At home, she likes baking with her girls, dreaming of buying a fixer upper and covering it with #shiplap, and cropping messes out of her Instagram shots.
