Community

I received funding to develop a project called the McGill “Little Free Libraries” or LFLs, which are designed for sharing books. Visitors are free to take a book and keep it, or return it when finished to any LFL on campus. LFL users can also provide a book of their own to an existing collection. Look for the McGill LFL repurposed newspaper boxes in the following buildings across campus:

1 - Brown Student Services Building (lobby)

2 - Leacock Building (entrance near the elevators)

3 - Arts Building (first floor)

4 - Redpath Library Building (basement cafeteria)

5 - Burnside Hall (basement)

Consistent with the goals outlined in McGill’s Vision 2020 Sustainability Strategy, the McGill LFL project aims to build community engagement, knowledge sharing through creative spaces, inclusivity, accessibility, and lifelong learning.

This project was made possible through Sustainability Projects Fund and the McGill Library Innovation Fund. Special thanks to our volunteer staff stewards and to project lead Amélie Lemieux and project assistant Elena Bouton.
