How Our Little Free Library Works!

The Montauk Little Free Library belongs to everyone and we want to thank EVERYONE that has used it over the last couple of years. The books are always FREE and anyone is welcome to use the library. If you find bookmarks or other treats in the library, those are for the taking as well.

How does it work? Simple.

Take Books, Share Books, Leave Books

TAKE BOOKS

If you see something you'd like to read, take it! In our library we try to keep a wide variety of reading materials...our kid books go fast.

SHARE BOOKS

When you're finished with a book, you may return it, pass it on to a friend or even put it in a different Little Free Library.

LEAVE BOOKS

Finished with a book, leave it. If our library is full you may leave the books on the front porch (if we're not home) or bring them to another Little Free Library in the area.

THERE'S MORE

Our library is also a Geocache Site. The Geocache is not IN the library. Geocaching is a great activity in our COVID environment. Check it out.

As part of the Little Free Library Network OUR MISSION is to inspire a love of reading, build community, and spark creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world.

Not A Library Book Return!

Our Little Free Library does a lot but we are not a library book return! Full disclosure - read this awesome book before sending it back to the library of origin.

It's a 2010 Newbery Honor Book, has a sequel and series if your young reader loves it as much as we did!

#ThankYouToddBol


We’re deeply saddened to report that the Founder of Little Free Libraries, Todd H. Bol, passed away Thursday, October 18.

Todd spent much of the last decade working towards his vision of a world where neighbors know each other by name, and everyone has access to books. He was heartened by the network of more than 75,000 Little Free Library stewards around the world dedicated to literacy and community. If you would like to leave your own memory or thanks click here and share.

Todd was more than just the creative force behind Little Free Library. He was a teacher, a lifelong entrepreneur, a father and a husband. He is survived by his wife Susan, daughter Allison and son Austin. Austin said, “He was the best, most generous, goofy, and kind person. He taught us to be kind to others. To many he was an innovator and genuine change maker. To us, he was dad. We will miss him always.”

“I really believe in a Little Free Library on every block and a book in every hand. I believe people can fix their neighborhoods, fix their communities, develop systems of sharing, learn from each other, and see that they have a better place on this planet to live.” – Todd H. Boll
