Building a more memorable childhood through books.
Acquisitions started in 1985...
Our founder has been collecting children's literature since the mid-1980s, never dreaming that one day, these beloved books would become the starting point for The Little Library That Could.
...for a library that
opened in 2021
Each title in our collection has been selected with special care, and with the intention to provide children with the joy that comes with discovering a kindred spirit between the pages of a book. We can't wait to begin sharing these titles with you and your children!
