Posted at 4:43 PM, Apr 06, 2018

Little libraries are opening up across the Valley in people's front-yards.

Little Free Library is a worldwide movement that aims to inspire readers of all ages.

The non-profit's motto is: "Take a book, return a book."

The City of Tempe is offering a $300 rebate to entice people to install and register a Little Library. Councilmembers Kolby Granville and David Schapira spearheaded the program.

Little Free Libraries was created back in 2009 by Todd Bol back in Wisconsin. He built a free library as a tribute to his mother who loved to read. 

The idea quickly spread across the country and world. 

According to the non-profit, there are over 50,000 registered Little Free Library book exchanges in every state in the U.S. and over 70 countries.
