Tucked in front of a quaint house in Old Town Claremore is a new addition to the neighborhood: a Little Free Library.
Homeowner Jenifer Nichols is a lifelong reader. She saw the idea for the Little Free Library online and knew she wanted to start one. After paying a membership fee to the organization and receiving an official sign, Jenifer set up her library. Owners can use anything to house their books and are encouraged to be creative with it. A recycled newspaper box is used for Jenifer’s. There are currently about 30 books in the collection, both for children and adults. There are no rules, and no fines. The idea is to take a book and leave a book. There are even free bookmarks available!
If you have books you would like to donate to the Little Free Library, you can leave them in the plastic box that is behind the library. Even better, you can start your own! Wouldn’t it be neat if we had Little Free Libraries all over Claremore?
To see Jenifer’s library, stop by 515 N. Chickasaw (on Chickasaw between 7th and 8th).
Love this idea!
Thanks for sharing my Little Free Library!
Love this! There’s one in Norman, about a block North of school, they use an old phone booth!
Debbie Proctor how cool
I saw one on the Disney Channel, and I think this is a great idea for our community to help encourage others to read!!
I have some donations. Where is this located?
515 N. Chickasaw (on Chickasaw between 7th and 8th).
Janelle,if you have any of those books left…
There’s one in Greeley, Co., where my son lives, by their community garden. My little grandson loves to trade books there.
Great to know! I may have some to donate
They are a great idea—-I would lie to see one in my town. Or a Used Book Store , bring in your old books and get a credit on another one. (just enough to pay the expenses of the building.)
