Little Free Library

Conway Little Free Library

Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world. CREATE Conway and Conway Cultural Development has six Little Free Libraries to install in Conway.

CREATE! Conway will host a grand-opening party for the Racepath Little Free Library Saturday, May 12th from 11 am - 1 pm. The public is invited. We will have a ribbon cutting at 11 am followed refreshments. Grab your family, friends and, neighbors as we take the first steps in creating a community full of Free Little Libraries for all to enjoy!

Little Free Libraries are a global phenomenon. The small, front-yard book exchanges number 60,000 around the world in 80 countries — from Iceland to Tasmania to Pakistan.

Now, a new Little Free Library at 1821 Racepath Ave. and 708 12th Ave. in Conway, South Carolina will join the movement to share books, bring people together and create communities of readers. Four additional Little Free Libraries will soon be located throughout Conway. The project goal is to build community, spark creativity and inspire a love of reading. Here’s how it works!

● We initially stock the Little Free Library with a variety of books
● Anyone may stop by and take whatever catches their eye
● Anyone may bring books to contribute when they can

The Conway Little Free Library is a project of CREATE! Conway, Conway
Cultural Development and community partners and volunteers.
