Elizabeth Little Free Library
Here is how it works:
The Little Free Library offers a way to share good things to read -favorite books from your childhood or books you would recommend to friends; books that teach, intrigue, and engage you. All of us can help by keeping this collection stocked with good reading material.
The library belongs to everyone! Neighbors, friends, and anyone else can use it. If you see something you would like to read, take it. Look inside and see who gave it and who else has read it. Once you’ve read it, return it to the Little Library or pass it on to a friend.
Little Free Library is a movement that started in 2010 and has expanded all across the world. The purpose is to create literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide, foster a sense of community and connection as we share skills, creativity, and wisdom across generations, and to build more than 2510 libraries around the world (this is the number of actual libraries built by Andrew Carnegie).
Learn more by visiting Little Free Library online or grab your kids and stroll down to the corner of Laurel and Kenmore to see it for yourself. This is just another reason the Elizabeth area is one of Charlotte’s sweetest hoods!
