The Little Free Library movement was founded in Wisconsin, USA by Todd Bol. In 2009, he built a replica school house in his garden and filled it with books, in memory of his mother, who was a teacher. It was a big hit in his community, and the idea started to spread. The Little Free Library organization was set up, and currently there are about 25,000 little free libraries all over the world, many of which are registered with the organization. Each registered Little Free Library is given a unique charter number, and an official sign to put on their library. Ours is shown below.

The mission of the Little Free Library organization is:

To promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide and to build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations.
