What books should I donate?


Three little free libraries have been launched on Syracuse’s Near Westside.  Located on Gifford, Tully and Otisco streets, these structures allow community members to “take a book” that they can read on the bus, at home, with family, or by themselves.  We encourage people to “return a book”, while recognizing that some books will find a permanent, caring home in the community.

If you have a small number of books you would like to donate, feel free to stop by one of our locations and add them to the collection yourself!

If you have a larger number of books to donate, please contact Maarten Jacobs (mjacob01@syr.edu).
