Little Libraries of Danvers


The Peabody Institute Library of Danvers has installed seven “Little Libraries of Danvers” throughout Town to promote reading and help build community. These “take one, leave one” free book exchanges were built by carpentry students at Essex North Shore Agricultural & Technical School out of salvaged library bookshelves.

The Little Libraries are located at:
Choate Farm
Putnamville Park, along the Rail Trail
Endicott Park
Hobart Street, along the Rail Trail
Maple Street
Pope’s Landing
Sandy Beach

If you visit one of the Little Libraries, please take a look at the books inside and feel free to take any that catch your interest. If you have appropriate books you’d like to give away, please feel free to drop a few off for your neighbors to enjoy.

Thanks to Danvers Recreation, Danvers Department of Public Works, Danvers Natural Resources Department, the Danvers Rail Trail, and Essex North Shore Agricultural & Technical School for helping with this project.
