Tiny Free Library – Share the Joy of Reading
Starting Monday, November 26th, John Tyler Community College will have two Tiny Free Libraries (or TFLs). Find them outside the libraries at the Chester and Midlothian Campus.
What is a free library, you ask? Think “take a penny, leave a penny,” but with books. Find your next read and it is yours to keep. If possible, bring in a book that you no longer need and share it with the community. This free library accepts any and all books. All we ask is that you try and follow a few basic rules:
- If you are donating, try to bring a book in good condition. Make sure the book is not checked out from another institution – whether a library, classroom, or a rental book from the bookstore.
- If you take a book, keep the cycle going. After you are finished, find a way to share the story. You can return it to the TFL (Tiny Free Library), lend it to a friend or neighbor, or donate it to charity.
- We accept any books – fiction, nonfiction, or an old textbook. We will take any of them!
- This library is for anyone. Student, former student, member of the community. You don’t need to donate a book to take one (or more). Our mission is to make reading as accessible as possible.
Tiny free libraries – this is exactly what is needed for those who can not buy interesting but expensive books. When I was a student, I often used these libraries. It has greatly improved and simplified student life.
