We are so excited to announce that we have 2 new Little Free Libraries in the town of Waddington ready for use! One is located just outside of the Library and one is at Howard Park Beach. Our 3rd Little Free Library will soon be installed at Island View Park Pavilion as well.

How this Library Works

Anyone may take a book – neighbors, friends and passersby – the books are always free. The premise being, take one/share one. Book donations are welcome at each Little Free Library location.

Little Free Libraries are a global phenomenon. The small, front-yard book exchanges number more than 100,000 around the world in over 100 countries – from Italy to Brazil to Japan. Now, there will be three new “Little Free Libraries” in Waddington!Little Free Libraries bring people together and creates a community of readers. Our hope is to encourage a more accessible and equitable way to share books with each other and to encourage reading for people of all ages.

If you’ve read a good book recently and enjoyed it, pass it along easily in one of our Little Free Library locations. We ask that all community members get involved and become stewards of the Little Free Libraries. Take pride in these Little Free Libraries and become an active reader and contributor.

And as always, if you want more to read – just visit your local Library!
