About Little Libraries
LibraryThing members are collaborating to find and record all the "Little Libraries" in their communities and the world.
Little Free Libraries
Begun in 2009, Little Free Libraries are community gathering spots designed to facilitate the free exchange of books, usually demarcated by a small wooden box in any given neighborhood. They can be found worldwide.
Bookcrossing hopes to give every book a unique identity so as to to promote and track the free exchange of books from reader to reader. Bookcrossing-friendly zones will help register and number new books as they get them.
Based predominantly in the Netherlands, MiniBieb functions in quite in the same way as a Little Free Library. They are loosely define boxes, shelves, or other areas, managed by a community members and intended to facilitate the free exchange of books.
