Little Free Libraries - Stewards

The Town has sought neighborhood stewards who act as caretakers and assist with ensuring our Little Free Libraries (LFL) remain stocked with appropriate materials, promote the LFL and make sure it is clean and inviting. LFL Stewards engage friends and neighbors so that every single person who comes in contact with your LFL feels like it’s THEIR Little Free Library & comes to care for it as much as you do.

✓  Do you enjoy reading several books a month?  
✓  Are you friendly with some of your neighbors?
✓  Would you consider yourself creative?
✓  Would you like to share your love of reading with your neighbors?

If you answered yes to any of these questions you too could one day help serve as a steward for the Town’s Little Free Libraries program. We currently have volunteers for each neighborhood where a LFL is located and more. Please see the information listed below.
