Little Free Library plans to work with local organizations to install and maintain book-sharing boxes in all communities in the U.S. that lack easy access to books, the nonprofit literacy organization announced this week. The organization estimates that 2,500 book-sharing boxes will be set up and maintained in order to fulfill this goal.
To date, there are 150,000 registered LFL book-sharing boxes around the world. Approximately 300 million books have been shared via these boxes since LFL was founded by the late Todd Bol in 2009. The organization’s headquarters is in St. Paul, Minn.
