The Hyde Park Free Library is proud to announce its participation — in partnership with the Hyde Park Rotary — in the “Little Free Library” initiative!
WHAT IS A LITTLE FREE LIBRARY?
It’s a cooperative “take a book, return a book” community gathering place where neighbors freely share their favorite literature and stories.
Hyde Park’s “Little Free Library” is located in the Stop & Shop Plaza in the Hyde Park Mall where anyone may stop by, peruse our selection, and pick up a book (or two).
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.
