Clinton Free Little Library Grand Opening Celebration

Little Free Libraries are a global phenomenon. These small book exchanges number 36,000 around the world in 70 countries — from Iceland to Tasmania to Pakistan. These mailbox-sized libraries are designed to share books, bring people together and create a community of readers. The Bigelow Free Public Library is partnering with the Parks & Recreation Department and the Friends of the Bigelow Library to create a Little Free Library right here in Clinton!   

The Little Free Library nonprofit organization has been honored by the Library of Congress, the National Book Foundation, and the American Library Association, and Reader’s Digest named them one of the “50 Surprising Things We Love about America.” Each year, nearly 10 million books are shared in Little Free Libraries. 

Clinton’s Library will be placed in Philbin Memorial Park
