    Nine Little Free Libraries have found homes in Great Falls parks. Little Free Libraries are “take a book, return a book” gathering places where neighbors share books and stories. At its most basic, a little free library is a structure, or a box, that holds books, and is placed in a public area where community members can borrow a book and replace it with another. This program has gained much popularity nationwide.
