Guide to Little Free Libraries in Central Massachusetts

By Emily Cabrera November 26, 2022

Our libraries are an incredible resource in our communities. But what if you need a quick activity to do with your family, and the library is closed? Or maybe you have some gently used books that your family has outgrown, and you're not sure what to do with them. The Little Free Library may be just what you need! Take the kids to find a new book, and leave a book behind that you no longer use. We plan to visit each of these locations in our area - so be sure to check back for updates and photos of each unique library! If you visit a location and the map is incorrect or the library is 'closed' (no longer there), please email me to let me know. Also, let me know if you find a Little Free Library not listed here - I'd love to add it!

Check out for more information and learn about how to start your own Little Free Library if there's not one near you.

Please note that some of these Little Free Libraries are located in residential areas, be respectful and courteous when you visit.

Leominster Little Library
40 Barrett Pkwy, Leominster, MA 01453

Our Little Library was a community effort to spread the joys of reading. All materials used to fabricate the library were recycled or reclaimed, donated by members of our community. The little library itself is made of reclaimed wood flooring from a barn. This was a fun, small project to spread literacy, but most of all, an incentive to get our community united and involved.
