What is a Little Free Library? – It’s a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. 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 (or two) and bring back another book to share.  The SCA Little Free Library will be located in the Shiloh Community Garden.

Little Free Library is a movement started by Todd Bol of Hudson and Rick Brooks of Madison in 2010, and has grown to include little libraries in most states and dozens of countries. Little Free Library’s mission is to:
• Promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide.
• Foster a sense of community and connection as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations.
• Build more than 2,510 libraries around the world (the number of “real” libraries built by Andrew Carnegie)!

The Shiloh Little Free Library was constructed by Charlie Franck with the support of Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity.
