Tiny Library Toolkit

Developed by the Meridian (Idaho) Library District through the 2018 Future of Libraries Fellowship, the Tiny Library Toolkit (pdf download) shares that library's experience creating a "lighter, quicker, cheaper" means of installing a library service point using a recycled shipping container. The tookit can be used by libraries to provide inspiration and practical assistance for planning informal, programmatic spaces in their communities.

The toolkit includes information about Meridian Library District's experiences with their Tiny Library and worksheets for libraries to plan their own spaces.

The toolkit is free to download and use in your library.
