Calgary snapshot: Little Free Library.


If you follow me on Instagram (or if you don’t, you can find me here) or my new Facebook page (here), you may have seen me share this photo, but just in case you missed it, I’ll put it up here as well. The Little Free Library set up near the community garden I belong to is so adorable – I love the colour scheme that was chosen for it.  From what I can tell whenever I stop by and open it up, it’s a popular fixture, with a varied and well-circulated selection of reading materials – everything from James Patterson to Robert Munsch, novels in multiple languages, cookbooks, hobby magazines, and religious tracts.  Are there any Little Free Libraries in your community?  Do you use them?


  1. That is indeed a very pretty one! I see many of these little libraries in Wisconsin and have done some swapping myself. 🙂

    • They have one that is set up on a shelf unit in the Fort St. John, BC, regional airport. The exact same idea as this one, but I have to agree:. The colors and look of this library “post” are very eye-catching. I think these are cool.

  2. There are a lot of them near me. I stop and look at them fairly often, but I have only used or contributed to a couple. They are very interesting and reflect the community they are in–lots of children’s books or multiple languages or classic or new fiction or history or a mix. It’s fun. And I can’t resist looking at a book collection…

  3. This looks so appealing! We have a free library in the village next to mine and it has been set up in a disused public phonebox. I have a look in it now-and-again but have only borrowed a book once. I have so many unread books at home I daren’t visit a library or a bookshop in case I succumb!

I'm delighted to hear from you - thanks so much for your comments!
