Hyde Park’s “Little Free Library!”

The Hyde Park Free Library is proud to announce its participation — in partnership with the Hyde Park Rotary — in the “Little Free Library” initiative!


It’s a cooperative  “take a book, return a book” community gathering place where neighbors freely share their favorite literature and stories.

Once you’ve had a chance to enjoy your read simply return at your leisure and donate another gently used book  that you’d like to share.
