Little Free Libraries in Dubuque Map

Full-screen map

The Dubuque Campaign for Grade-Level Reading and the AmeriCorps VISTA program recently set up Little Free Libraries at five of Dubuque's six fire stations. These join several other Little Free Libraries which already exist throughout Dubuque.

Carnegie-Stout Public Library supports these initiatives and will furnish books to the Little Free Libraries at the fire stations if inventory runs low.

What are Little Free Libraries?

From the City of Dubuque: "A Little Free Library, in its most basic form, is a small box that houses free books for anyone to take and exchange at any time. Returns and/or exchanges are not mandatory, but encouraged. Dubuque’s Little Free Libraries are open to everyone regardless of income level, age, or residence. Non-residents are welcome to participate." For more information, see Little Free Library, Ltd.

  1. The City of Dubuque press release lists "Bryant Elementary, 220 Hill St." but we think this might actually be at 220 Bryant St. south of Dodge. See this Google Street View: The map above has been corrected to show this. Thanks to Andrea on Facebook for pointing this out.

  2. I added 1195 Prysi Street to the map above on October 6, 2014.

  3. The City of Dubuque Geographic Information System (GIS) Office is also mapping Little Free Libraries. See their maps at
