Little libraries were built or purchased by volunteers and placed in the park with assistance from the Park Spark Team. Local stewards monitor the libraries and help keep them stocked with books. Make sure to help them out by leaving a book for others to enjoy next time you’re in one of these parks! Books for adults and children are welcomed.
