One of my husband’s pandemic projects was to build a Little Free Library. It’s not quite done yet, but it’s been such a fun project for him, since he loves working with wood. Of course, not all folks who’d love a Little Free Library at their residence — be it for free books, puzzles, pantry staples, games, or other goods of value to the local community — has access to the tools or skills to build one. Enter: a look at a wide range of awesome Little Free Libraries to buy.

Any of these Little Free Libraries to buy would make for excellent post-holiday projects and encourage creativity as you and your loved ones decorate the outside to create them in your own image. Buying a Little Free Library doesn’t mean you give up the freedom to make it your own; instead, you’re simply leaving the building to someone else, and have the chance to exercise your skills elsewhere.

Treat yourself or a loved one to one of these awesome Little Free Libraries.
