Little Free Library

Books Beyond the Library


The Library provides small collections of books for our youth to enjoy at the City's Broderick, Forbes, and Youth Park Recreation Centers. Four "Little Free Libraries" are also installed in the City, supported by the Library as well as by community members who are welcome to pass on favorite titles to others in these small, honor-system book boxes.

How do Little Free Libraries work?

You are encouraged to leave a book or take a book. We try to keep a box of books in the trunk so that we’re always prepared. It’s such a warm & fuzzy feeling when you add books for others to discover. 

Keeping the Little Free Libraries stocked is a community endeavor; while the Library assists, community participation is critical to their success. If you see an empty Little Free Library, please consider bringing a few titles to help refill it.  Children's titles are always needed! If you observe damage, let us know by emailing us at library@pinellas-park.com..

Other Little Free Libraries are popping up around town as individuals and neighborhood associations join in the effort. you are welcome to take or donate to those as well.
