Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization established in Wisconsin with the mission of promoting literacy and a love for reading.

The organization is about creating “take a book, return a book” exchange locations where communities can gather and share books and stories.

According to the website, the most common version is a small wooden box of books where anyone may take a book or bring a book to share. That's the "personal touch" of these little libraries -- it's real people sharing their favorite books with their community.

The goal is to grow as big as possible. So far, there are about 40,000 little libraries worldwide, according to the website.

Many are right here in the Valley.
