There are currently four Little Free Libraries at Town facilities. Little Free Libraries are small structures that contain books for the community, who are encouraged to “take a book and leave a book.” The Little Free Library movement started in Wisconsin in 2009 and has since grown into a world-wide network of community-based book exchanges that promote reading and sharing.

Girl Scout Troop 3064 worked with their parents and sponsors to design, build, and stock four Little Free Libraries for Town of Chapel Hill facilities: the Transit Operations Center, 6900 Millhouse Road; the Aquatic Center, 300 Northern Park Drive; the South Estes Housing neighborhood; and the Community Center. During the project, the scouts worked with staff from the Chapel Hill Public Library, Parks and Recreation, Chapel Hill Transit, as well as the Town’s departments of Housing and Community, and Planning and Sustainability.
