Book lovers around the world enjoy searching for Little Free Libraries using our app. We need your help to increase the accuracy of our map of book-sharing boxes!

You can get started in 2 steps: register online (https://givepul.se/jgrhut) and then complete a self-paced online training. We will show you how easy it is to use our free app to find Little Free Libraries and report any that are missing.

It’s very flexible: search for libraries whenever it fits in your schedule. For your convenience, you will identify the areas of Chicago - Naperville - Elgin that are easiest for you to visit.

Purpose/Impact of the Role: By increasing the accuracy of Little Free Library locations on our free world map, you are helping us to build community, inspire readers, and expand book access.

Responsibilities:

  • Explore your neighborhood in Chicago - Naperville - Elgin using the free Little Free Library mobile app.
  • If a mapped library is missing, use the app to report it and share helpful notes. (We will reach out to the caretakers of those Little Free Libraries to follow up.)
  • If you find a book-sharing box without a charter sign, leave an invitation to join the Little Free Library network.
  • Collect information about the book-sharing boxes you find so that we can do follow up outreach.

Time Required: Please complete the Little Free Library visits by the end of September 2024. You can schedule your volunteer time based on your own availability.

Training & Resources Available: We will help you get to know our organization and share best practices for visiting Little Free Libraries through our self-paced online training. We’ll also mail you printed invitations & envelopes that you can share with unregistered book-sharing boxes.

Qualifications:

  • Curious and friendly
  • Familiar with the Little Free Library mobile app or willing to learn
  • Able to collect information while on-the-go and share it with us via online forms
  • Have access to transportation to get to Little Free Libraries in your community

Benefits/Volunteer Perks: You’ll get a free Little Free Library t-shirt after you record your first impact on the Team LFL hub! If you need hours verified for a service-learning or workplace volunteer program, Little Free Library can provide verification.

Supervision & Support: Little Free Library’s Community Engagement Manager can answer questions. We also offer virtual Team LFL Q&A sessions for volunteer support.
