Little Free Library #12930
Official opening was on Saturday, September 27.
Check out our Facebook page for up to date information and photos.
The way it works is simple:
- We stock the LFL with a variety of good quality books that we hope will interest our neighbors
- You stop by and take whatever catches your fancy
- You return and bring books to contribute when you can
- LFL books are always a gift – never for sale!
Because of communities like ours, the Little Free Library movement has rapidly grown. Many Libraries have been installed and thousands of books shared around the country as well as around the world. Little Free Library’s mission is to:
- Promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide.
- To build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations.

Here is a list of book exchanges in Vancouver (not all of them are LFLs).
Our Little Free Library was designed, built and installed by Ted Cole, a PHHC member. It is made with the same siding as the heritage houses of Pacific Heights Housing Co-op. Here are his drawings:
It is a three-level structure with the bottom level reserved for kids books.
This project is made possible through a Greenest City Neighbourhood Small Grant and the generosity of Gordon Neighbourhood House, The City of Vancouver and the Vancouver Foundation.
