The library is proud to sponsor several "little libraries" around the county.  These operate as free book exchanges...take a book, leave a book.  The library will also periodically stock the libraries with additional titles suitable for children, teens, and adults.  Special thanks to Rutherford County Woodworkers Association and Rutherford County Visual Arts Guild for their work in building and painting the little libraries.  See the maps below for all the locations:
