Little Free Libraries are Popping up Around Goodlettsville

Chief Reeves and Natalie Reeves

“Take a Book, Return a Book.” That’s the official motto of the Little Free Library, three of which have popped up around Goodlettsville, with another coming soon. Book lovers can find newly installed Little Free Libraries at the Peay Park playground beside the Delmas Long Community Center, the Visitors Center by Historic Mansker’s Station, the Goodlettsville Fire Department Hall, and coming soon, the new Gateway Park in the Gateway neighborhood.

The Little Free Libraries were just one project to come out of Goodlettsville Community Week, first held in November 2016. Each library has a steward who takes the lead on monitoring and caring for its contents. Children, youth and adults of all ages and backgrounds can share in the give and take of the libraries, which resemble birdhouses.

Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world. To date, there are more than 50,000 Little Free Libraries, represented in all 50 states and more than 70 countries.
