A program by the Friends of the Richardson Library seeks to build community ties and help spread the love of reading.

The nonprofit group is offering free, unassembled Little Free Library kits and a starter collection of books for Richardson homeowners interested in setting up tiny “libraries” in their neighborhood.

Homeowners, businesses and organizations can install a kit on their property in an easily accessible location. The “little libraries” run on an honor system and participants are encouraged to both take and leave a book or two. Books are geared toward all ages. You do not have to immediately donate a book to receive one; you can donate a book at a later time.

There are currently 18 little free libraries located throughout Richardson. Public locations include the animal shelter and the Richardson Public Library’s outdoor reading garden.

Each Amish shed-style kit includes:

  • Step-by-step instructions
  • Pre-cut, pre-drilled pieces
  • Screws, nails and hardware
  • Plexiglass
  • A “Little Free Library Original” medallion
  • A “steward’s packet” with details on how to set up and maintain your “library.”
  • Anyone setting up a tiny library is expected to maintain the unit and books on an ongoing basis.
  • The Friends of the Richardson Library chooses which books to use to start the mini library.

To apply for a kit or obtain more information, visit richardsonfol.org/little-free-libraries.

The tiny library initiative was started in Wisconsin in 2009 and has since spread around the world.
