Free Little Lending Libraries in Vienna

There’s been a resurgence of interest in little free libraries in our area.  A little free library is a “take a book leave a book” free book exchange.  They come in many shapes and sizes, but the most common version is a small wooden box of books in a home’s front yard or public location. We have one located in front of our very own Little Library Museum (located on Mill Street).  With access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds, anyone may take a book or bring a book to share.

Little Libraries inspire readers and strengthen communities.

  • 92% of people say their neighborhood feels like a friendlier place because of a Little Free Library.
  • 3 out of 4 people report they’ve read a book they normally would not have read because of a Little Free Library.
  • 73% of people say they’ve met more neighbors because of a Little Free Library.

The Town of Vienna has dozens of free little libraries scattered throughout our neighborhoods.  Each one is charming and unique.  If you’d like to visit any, or all, of them please click here for a list of all registered boxes in Vienna by zip code.  If you’re interested in knowing where one is located in another locality visit https://littlefreelibrary.org/  

Note: Not all little free libraries are officially registered. Many exist without this designation.
