sunnySide ↑ Rules

Little Free Library is a community-driven, unattended book exchange service.  As a result, we ask that you always exchange & place a book in place of the one you are wanting to take home & read.  Any act outside of this will be considered unethical, theft of property, and will be reported to the police with supporting video evidence.  The library is under 24 hour recorded, video surveillance.

sunnySide ↑ FAQ

Can my dog pee on the library post?

  • Absolutely.  We are a pet friendly library.

Can I sit on your bench to read a book/e-book?

  • Again, absolutely.  It’s why the librarian insisted it be placed there.

What are the library hours of operation?

  • Sunrise to sunset.

What condition do my books need to be in for the Library to receive them?

  • Gently used & undamaged, please.

Can I bring multiple books or a box of books?

Yes, please place them in a covered box, neatly on either side of the front door of 108 Mary Ann Lane.

We review these areas daily for deliveries.

  • Thank you for choosing to help!
