Little Free Libraries

The Saugerties Public Library and the Friends of the Library are proud to announce the installation of 12 “Little Free Libraries” across the Town and Village of Saugerties. “Little Free Libraries” are free book exchanges (take a book, leave a book – but not a book you’ve checked out of the library) for promoting literacy and the love of reading as well as strengthening a sense of community.

Thanks to the immeasurable help of the Town Parks and Building crew, these 12 Little Free Libraries will join the nationwide movement to share books, bring people together and create neighborhoods of readers.

1. 113 A Partition Street, Saugerties (Lucky Chocolates)
2. Glasco Firehouse/Little League Field – 138 Glasco
3. Mt. Marion Park – Park Circle
