Little Free Libraries
Little Free Libraries are free, neighbourhood book exchanges around the Town of Banff. Anyone can take a book or leave a book to share.
Banff has six Little Free Libraries registered with littlefreelibrary.org. Each box was crafted by woodworking students at Banff Community High School.
Studies show that books in the hands of children have a meaningful impact on improving literacy. The more books in or near the home, the more likely a child will learn and love to read. These micro-libraries play an essential role by providing 24/7 access to books.
