Little Free Library Initiative
The Rock Hill Council of Neighborhoods, along with several other organizations within our city, are spearheading the Little Free Library program in Rock Hill.
Little free Libraries are a “take a book, return a book” gathering place. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book and then bring back that or another book to share. It’s also a great way to keep kids (and often adults) reading over the summer when school is out. In essence, the neighborhood or organization “adopts” their Little Free Library and makes sure it stays maintained and full of books.
Little Free Libraries can be placed anywhere – HOA common areas, parks, churches, civic or neighborhood centers, or private property – as long as permission from the property owner is obtained first.
If neighborhoods are not able to raise the cost of a box on their own, the RHCN may choose to help provide funding. If neighborhoods have trouble finding books to restock their Little Free Libraries, the RHCN can provide sources of books for the asking.
