Our Little Libraries program supports Mesa residents in creating Little Libraries to inspire a love of reading through book exchanges and fostering connections in neighborhoods. This program was developed through Imagine Mesa and is modeled after the national Little Free Libraries program with permission of Little Free Library, LTD.

Those interested in creating, installing and registering a Little Library may receive up to $260 in library supplies as well as the cost of registration fees (approx. $40). Our program provides funding for libraries on private properties within neighborhoods to benefit the community. Library supplies may include materials needed to create, weatherize and install your library, with the exception of tools.

All applications will be reviewed on a first come, first served basis, subject to availability of funds, completion of required paperwork, and project approval by the City of Mesa.
