Little Free Libraries Abound in University City

April 2020 University City News

As featured on page 9 of the April 2020 University City News, from Jemma Samala: Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that aims to inspire a love of reading, build community, and spark creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges. While public libraries are closed, this would be a good time to visit, borrow, and leave a book. They are also becoming places to leave extra supplies that neighbors can leave for others (such as food items, toilet paper, etc).

We took a drive around University City and put together the attached guide. If we missed one, let us know. For more info about the program, go to

Take a look; they are everywhere … and they are beautiful!

Please note: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there is no home delivery of the April 2020 University City News newsletter. A limited number of print copies are available for pick-up at the ‘back door’ parking lot of the University Community Library at 4155 Governor Drive and in many of the “Little Free Libraries” in University City.
