What is a Little Free Library?
Little Free Libraries are small, informal spaces where neighbors are encouraged to "Take a Book, Return a Book." They originated in Wisconsin in 2009 as a son's tribute to his mother, a schoolteacher. In the years since, this simple idea has grown into a worldwide movement that fosters literacy and kindness.

Our Little Free Library Network
The City of Sunrise created its first Little Free Libraries as part of a Sunrise Leadership Academy (SLA) service-learning project. In order to design and stock their Libraries, the SLA Class of 2013 collaborated with an impressive array of community stakeholders, including: poet Ashley M. Jones, artist and muralist GG, NSU book arts professor Tennille Shuster, award-winning author Edwidge Danticat, Young At Art Museum, 
The Palm Beach Post, Books & Books (and bookseller Becky Quiroga Curtis), IKEA Sunrise, Sawgrass Elementary, Sandpiper Elementary, Village Elementary, Nob Hill Elementary, Elks Lodge #2273, Central Sunrise Residents Association, Eastern Sunrise Residents Association, and the Greater Sunrise Chamber of Commerce.

In recognition of these efforts, Sunrise received the prestigious Cities of Excellence Community Spirit Award from the Broward League of Cities in August 2013. 

The SLA Class of 2019 proudly expanded the City's Little Free Library network - refurbishing the Flamingo Park location and adding several more. New Little Free Libraries are also planned for Welleby Park and the Sunrise Sportsplex.

Book Donations Welcome!
Little Free Libraries are all about sharing. If you have gently-used paperbacks or hardcovers you'd like to contribute, please place them in the Little Free Library nearest you, or bring them to the Leisure Services office on the second floor of the Sunrise Civic Center (10610 West Oakland Park Boulevard). Thank you!
