Little Free Library App

The Little Free Library app makes it easy to find little library locations near you! Use the search filters to narrow in on little libraries you want to visit, easily get directions to the nearest ones, or create a route. See a library you like? Add it to your list of favorites. Track the libraries you visit using the handy check-ins feature. If you’re a Little Free Library steward, there’s a section of the app just for you that lets you edit your library’s listing in real time! Little Free Library Map:  Easy-to-use search filters help you find Little Free Libraries by zip code, city/state, charter number, or your current location. Favorite and Track the Little Libraries You Visit:  Keep a list of your favorite little libraries and track the ones you visit using check-ins. Get Directions or Create Routes:  Tap the Get Directions button to get step-by-step directions to the nearest Little Free Library book-sharing box, or add multiple little libraries to a route. Sign the Guest Book:  After you stop by a particular little library, leave a note for the steward (aka caretaker) in its guest book! The guest book is a fun way to connect with the little library steward and see what other visitors have to say. Features for Little Free Library Volunteer Stewards: If you’re the steward of a registered Little Free Library, the app lets you edit your library’s listing in real time! Add new photos, update your library’s story, include social media links, enable a guest book for your visitors, and much more… all from within the app.

Little Free Library app reviews

  • Useful but flawed 3/5

    By gordonross
    This is a handy app, but the “search this area” button disappears once you use it and the only way to get it back is to Force Quit the app. A major design flaw.
  • Won’t download 1/5

    By jenniebeelee
    I’ve heard good things about this app through a friend but it won’t even let me download it.
  • good start 4/5

    By DSpaceNine
    needs a way to update photos of each LFL. Several in my town lack a photo and I’d like to be able to add one each time I stop by. Would help the LFL owner know what state it is in and helps other travelers spot the LFL.
  • Your app developer are taking advantage of you 1/5

    By lilyyyy [cupcake]
    This app is such a great concept but clearly being produced by a company not supporting this app. The app freezes or crashes completely, you can no longer check in at any location without the app crashing and forget marking favorites, that feature has never worked. This is a shell of an app, and this non profit deserves better. Shame on JMC. Fix their app already, this has been going on for months.
  • So excited! 5/5

    By DavidisBangin'
    Finally! An app with a map that shows where Little Free Libraries are! Looking at the map, I am marking which Libraries I’ve visited so far. Since I travel a lot, this app will be sooo helpful and fun to use! Thanks for making this app!
  • Cool app 4/5

    By Amanda_€
    I really like the app! When I go on walks I pick a far distanced lending library and walk there and back. More recently though it’s been stuck on the loading screen and won’t fully open….not sure if it on my end, but I’ve reset my phone, done an update, and the app still won’t open. I miss my app 😢
  • App won’t open. 3/5

    By Mj loves cats
    I’m sure the app is great, but I can’t get it to load. I have been waiting 5 minutes and it still hasn’t pulled anything up except the loading screen.
  • The app won’t load 1/5

    By PN10018
    I downloaded this today and I’ve tried many times to get it to load but when I open the app, it shows me the purple screen and an endless spinning loading indicator. Doesn’t matter if I’m on wifi or data. I’ve quit the app and reopened it. I’ve reinstalled it. Nothing.
  • Spinning, spinning, spinning 1/5

    By Ret63Fun
    Downloaded this app to my iPad. All it does is spin. Can’t use it at all!
  • It the app constantly updating??? 2/5

    By kvl000
    Hardly every works when Driving around looking for book titles, very frustrating.
  • Not showing libraries on map 1/5

    By dotking33
    I’ve reported this but got a prepackaged response. The app hasn’t been showing libraries on the map for months.
  • Tough to use in dark mode 2/5

    By MitchCohen
    The dark purple used throughout the app is nearly impossible to see in dark mode, so I’m unable to really use the app. Change the dark mode variant in the color assets to something else and it’ll be fine.
  • useless 1/5

    By evilcuties
    the map in the app doesn’t work so i have to go to their website.
  • LOVEEEE IT 5/5

    By Gigiloveslouis
    I had no idea Little Free Libraries had an app??Everything about this is so easy to use, my fav feature is the bar at the bottom you can swipe up that shows you a list of every LFL closest to you. Tapping on the address linked to the library automatically copies it as well which is EVERYTHINGG and you can also add libraries onto a route and categorize them with indicators in the search bar which is just GENIUSS. thank you sm for this, it’s genuinely my favorite app now !! i WILL be checking it 24/7 and seeing all of the LFL I can find everywhere I go.
  • App doesn’t work for LFL stewards 1/5

    By [email protected] 1234567890
    Endless do loops if you are a new LFL Steward trying to set up an account and associate it with an LFL charter number. Forms that only partially load. Can’t accomplish what they tell you you’re supposed to be able to do via the app. I get that LFL is a nonprofit but someone got paid to make this defective app. It needs to be fixed.
  • Great! 4/5

    By Anna Karg
    Great app for little free libraries, my only complaint is my phone is in dark mode and I guess the app automatically goes to that dark mode making the purple markers kinda hard to see on the map, so it would be nice to change that mode within the app, but other than that it’s fine!
  • Super Awesome App 5/5

    By Ry61384
    This is the coolest app right now. I really like being able to favorite all the libraries in my area to go and find all the cool stuff inside later. It is also so easy to update my library profile. If you have a library please add it to the world map cause you will get more visitors that way.
  • Nicely done! 5/5

    By Martvic:)
    Thank you LFL…my box with all the correct information came right up and in a very user friendly format!
  • cute but glitchy 3/5

    By Kristen Johns
    love this cute little app! definitely preferred the original logo and colors over the blue one. the search feature works well, but whenever I try to click on a heart to favorite a library, the app crashes immediately. as soon as they’re able to fix this glitch I’ll switch my review to five stars - love LFLs!! 📚✨
  • Buggy and terrible 1/5

    By Leen D.
    Doesn’t keep you logged in. Copies unnecessary info when you want the address to a box. Map is slow to load or… The map never loads at all! Lots of bugs to fix. Please fix them.
  • Perfect app for Little Free Library 5/5

    By neo1866
    I am so impressed with this app! As a Little Free Library participant. It is very cool to be able to upload new photos of the library or to add messages that people will see.
  • Fun! 5/5

    By MoxnSox
    Well thought out and easy to use. Only bit of constructive criticism would be to include an indicator specific for “children’s books” and/or a way to specify if there is a book category (or perhaps even a genre) the LFL is intended for.
  • I’ve been waiting for this! 5/5

    By Whorchataa
    I am so excited this app is here! I love visiting Free Little Libraries in my area but using the website to locate them before was a little difficult. I love that this app is easy to use and I love that I can check in at different libraries AND get directions! I am so thankful this app exists!!!
  • Won’t Send Email Address Verification 1/5

    By jonesware
    Pretty much unusable as never received email address verification link. Used same address as what I registered the library with.
  • Beautiful App for Little Free Library lovers 5/5

    By JeremyHillman
    I completely love this app as a Little Free Library steward and user. It’s fantastic to be part of the Little Free Library community and this app really helps bring it all together
  • A must-have for LFL users! ❤️📚 5/5

    By MichelleAndHerLFL
    A very thoughtfully designed app for both Little Free Library stewards and fans alike. I especially enjoy the steward-only features like book and library updates - making communication with our patrons, using the app, a breeze. The map feature (with driving directions) is integral for LFL-hunts and book bombing expeditions. It was a pleasure being able to offer feedback as a beta-tester for the app - and watch it continue to take shape.
  • Fantastic app! 5/5

    By stephsummerk
    This app is so helpful! Thank you Little free library for connecting our communities!
  • Finally! 5/5

    By petunias_ma
    So excited to see this out in the world at last! The hard work put into this really shows.
