Little Free Libraries are a global phenomenon. The small, front‐yard and Community book exchanges number 36,000 around the world in 70 countries — from Iceland to Tasmania to Pakistan. Now, a new Little Free Library at 22525 Soaring Woods will join the movement to share books, bring people together and create communities of readers.

This Little Free Library (LFL) is the 2nd to go in Northeast section of Houston and the 1st in the Kingwood area! A Little Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. They come in many different shapes and sizes, but the most common is a small wooden box of books. Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share and many write a note or story inside their books! The more the merrier! If you take a book (or two) from a Library, you do not need to return that exact book. However, in order to keep the Little Library full of good choices for the whole neighborhood, the next time you swing by the Little Library bring a few books to share. Little Library book exchanges function on the honor system; everyone contributes to ensure there are always quality books inside. The Little Free Libraries have a unique personal touch where there is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community. They are often called “mini-town squares.”

The Little Free Library nonprofit organization has been honored by the Library of Congress, the National Book Foundation, the American Library Association, and Reader’s Digest has named them one of the “50 Surprising Things We Love about America.” Each year, nearly 10 million books are shared in Little Free Libraries.

We hope that you enjoy this new addition to our community and wish everyone happy reading!
