Our North Phoenix program is now officially steward of Little Free Library #85591!
Little Free Library is a non-profit organization devoted to bringing literacy to all neighborhoods in the form of mini libraries. You may have seen these libraries before in front yards, doctor’s offices or bus stops!
We are so excited to join in Little Free Library’s book sharing movement as it is another way to serve our current families but also inspire readers of all ages within our community. We welcome your donations of children’s books and participation to help this library continue to be successful and reach families within our North Phoenix community!

Grand Opening Celebration
Our grand opening celebration began with a reading by Ms. Julie of the classic book, “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie.” While reading the story our preschoolers enjoyed a cookie and laughed together at each of the mouse’s crazy endeavors described in the book.
Our preschool students were so excited to be included in the grand opening of the library! Together we introduced each book, gave it a hug and welcomed it to our library before placing it inside.
How Little Free Library Works
Our library is stocked with a variety of favorite infant, toddler and preschool books both in English and Spanish,
Your family can stop by the library and take home anything that catches your eye!
Return your borrowed books and any books you’d like to donate,
Help our library grow by sharing it with the community and tagging photos with #littlefreelibraryatvcclc!
Why Little Free Library?
At Valley Child Care & Learning Center, we are proud to have served families in Phoenix for over 50 years as a local and family owned business. Much of our success has been achieved with partnerships from those within our community. Because we know that providing young children with high quality and accessible literature has benefits not only cognitively but socially and emotionally, the decision to join Little Free Library’s book sharing movement was an easy one. The brand new, Little Free Library on our North Phoenix campus is just another way we’ve chosen to give back and be active in the North Phoenix community while encouraging a love of literacy among children and their families. Our library is open to all families, we look forward to seeing you stop by and choose a title that catches your eye to take home. The opportunity to serve your family and provide a resource that encourages you to spend time together exploring a book is an honor that is not lost on us.
We can’t wait to hear where your reading adventures take you!
Little Free Library will soon be coming to our South Phoenix, El Mirage and Paradise Valley locations!
