Thanks to a couple of ambitious Erlton residents, as well as support from the Federation of Calgary Communities, the CBC Eyeopener and the Canadian Red Cross, our community has been gifted a Free Little Library!
The Erlton Community Association is excited to invite you to our Free Little Library Launch Party!

What is a Free Little Library, you ask? The way it works is simple:
- We initially stock the library with a variety of books
- You stop by and take whatever catches your fancy
- You return and/or bring books to contribute
- The books are always a gift – never for sale!
The Free Little Library movement began in 2009 and has since grown to over 18,000 little libraries worldwide! Free Little Libraries not only promote literacy and a love of reading, they foster a sense of community and connection across generations. You can read more about the Free Little Library story, and check out their gallery of libraries, at www.littlefreelibrary.org
