Little Free Library

Little Free Libraries are popping up in some key locations in Bay Minette. While they may look like giant birdhouses, these mini libraries are stocked full of books that are free for the taking. Sponsored by the Bay Minette Public Library, the Little Free Libraries are an effort to share the love of literature with patrons of all ages. The concept is simple: take what you want and leave behind what you can.

The Free Little Library program began 2015 in Bay Minette and has grown to now include nine locations in and outside the city’s limits. The Little Free Libraries can be found at Kids Park on McMillan Avenue; Pine Grove Elementary; Douglasville School of Arts and Recreation; 40880 County Road 39 in White House Fork; Lottie Volunteer Fire Department; Dollar General Store in Stockton; Delta Elementary in White House Fork; Crossroads Headstart; and Perdido School.

Each library is registered with the Little Free Library organization and entered into the national database on their world map. Since the books are not part of the library system, they do not have to be checked out and no library card is required.
