Library Builder Grant

The Missouri Conference is partnering with Little Free Library to impact communities around the state! In our pursuit of connecting 100,000 students with 100,000 books, we encourage churches to consider whether a Little Free Library in their community could meet a need. Churches can apply for $250 micro-grants for materials to build, stock and maintain a Little Free Library in a neighborhood of their choice.


STEP 1: Download Library Builder Grant Local Church Toolkit below.
STEP 2: Build, install and stock your Free Little Library (see Guide for process).
STEP 3: Take a picture of the Free Little Library (we’d love to have a picture of the team that worked on it, too) and complete the following grant application.

Grants are ONLY available after the Free Little Library has been built, installed and stocked.

Submit your Library Builder Grant Request


STEP 4: After application review, $250 grants will be sent to the local church or ministry (e.g., youth group, UMW). This grant program is not available for individuals. Plus, the Missouri Conference will register your Free Little Library for your church ($40 value).


The Library Builder Grant program is provided through the generosity of Tom and LaVerne Fulton. Learn more at Costner-Fulton Fund.
