Bookleggers is a nonprofit, mobile community library with the mission to permeate Miami with books.

Through public access points, programming, and installations that place books in unexpected spaces, Bookleggers creates dynamic participatory experiences that increase book access and serve as a conduit for community exchange.

For those new to Bookleggers, the rules are simple:

1) Everyone gets one book for free
2) We accept trades – a book for a book.
3) Each additional book is $2.

We sell our more rare items at select events at or below market value.

Additionally, Bookleggers Library has a series of semi-permanent and public access points for books. We call them Bookboxes. See our map below.

For more information, to make a donation, or to learn about how to have Bookleggers install a library, please contact us at info@bookleggerslibrary.com.

Bookleggers Events & Public Libraries

Bookleggers Library provides two ongoing public services: Events and Bookboxes.

We set up at rotating venues once a month and give away free books to the public. The events are programmed with various partners and everyone gets one free book.

Across Miami we have a series of bookboxes, or semi permanent libraries where people can visit to browse or drop off books.
