The Little Free Library is part of Orange County United Way’s OC Reads program promoting early childhood literacy.
These libraries help to communicate the importance of getting children engaged in reading and learning at an early age by making books available to children who may not otherwise have access to building a home library. Reading is a critical bridge to success in school, work and life.
The libraries offer unlimited access to books in areas where books are scarce. With a “take one, leave one” concept, readers can borrow a book and leave a book to share with others. The books are free and replenished by Orange County United Way with donations from the community.
Currently, there are 6 Little Library locations in doctor’s offices, schools, community centers, parks and waiting rooms throughout Orange County, with more on the way. See below to find the closest Little Free Library near you.
