Little Free Libraries

In partnership with the cities of Mentor and Mentor-on-the-Lake, Mentor Public Library’s Little Free Libraries (LFLs) are once again popping up in select locations around town.

“The Little Free Libraries provide another way for the community to connect with the library and with each other. Take a book, leave a book—or just take a book. We are very simply promoting reading and reaching out to folks who may never have crossed our thresholds.”
– Lynn Hawkins, Executive Director, Mentor Public Library
