Introducing our Little Free Library!

On November 12, 2014, the Topsfield Town Library unveiled the first Little Free Library in Topsfield! Build by Topsfield resident Joe McGaunn as an Eagle Scout project, the Little Free Library belongs to the entire community. Anyone can use it. The concept is simple: take a book and leave a book. Drop off a copy of your favorite book. Take a copy of a book you'd like to read. It's a wonderful way to pass on your love of reading to the entire community. For more information, visit
