A free book-sharing movement

This movement is fuelled by generous citizens who believe in the importance of getting South Africans back into reading in a digital age.

Look out for the lil’brary located near you and please feel free to take a book for your journey or just for reading at home. If you would like to contribute books you no longer need, consider donating them to a lil’brary.

lil’braries are about freedom. Freedom to read, freedom of ideas. They are about education, about protesting the closure of libraries, about using our imaginations and providing for others to use theirs.
