Claremore Welcomes ‘Little Free Library’


Tucked in front of a quaint house in Old Town Claremore is a new addition to the neighborhood: a Little Free Library. 

Homeowner Jenifer Nichols is a lifelong reader. She saw the idea for the Little Free Library online and knew she wanted to start one. After paying a membership fee to the organization and receiving an official sign, Jenifer set up her library. Owners can use anything to house their books and are encouraged to be creative with it. A recycled newspaper box is used for Jenifer’s. There are currently about 30 books in the collection, both for children and adults. There are no rules, and no fines. The idea is to take a book and leave a book. There are even free bookmarks available!

If you have books you would like to donate to the Little Free Library, you can leave them in the plastic box that is behind the library. Even better, you can start your own! Wouldn’t it be neat if we had Little Free Libraries all over Claremore?

To see Jenifer’s library, stop by 515 N. Chickasaw (on Chickasaw between 7th and 8th).
