Grassroot Givers aims to spark a love for books in children and adults across the Capital Region. We accept donations of beautiful, like-new books and puts them back into the community through its various programs, such as Albany Feed-and-Read and Little Free Library. Since our inception in 2011, we have given out over 250,000 books to Albany Public Schools, Books for Troops, Albany County Headstart and countless other organizations.
Little Free Library (LFL)
The Little Free Library Program focuses on giving access to books in places without local libraries, or schools that have dated or old books. We enlist the help of community members to build and maintain freestanding book boxes, where anyone can take or drop a book off. Here's a map of our LFLs in Albany.
We are grateful to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital District for their generous support of our Little Free Library Program.
