Little Free Library Hancock County

What is a Little Free Library?

According to, "A Little Free Library is a 'take a book, return a book' free book exchange. They come in many shapes and sizes, but the most common version is a small wooden box of books. Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share.

Little Free Library book exchanges have a unique, personal touch. There is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community; Little Libraries have been called 'mini-town squares."

Hancock County Little Free Libraries were originally started with the help of a Leadership Hancock County team a few years ago. During the 2016-2017 program, another LHC team worked on creating this website, procuring a storage facility and organizing community service groups to volunteer to maintain the Libraries.

Leadership Hancock County is grateful to the Greenfield Parks and Rec Dept for their assistance in maintaining this program for the community.
