The Occoquan Tourism Company

Little Free Library

Welcome to our Little Free Library, known as the "Porta Pagoda".  We established our library in 2015 as the second such library in the Town of Occoquan (the first was at the Preservation Station store on Union Street, where it still exists today.)  Please feel free to take a book or donate a book.  Our donation preferences are reasonably broad.  Children's books are very popular, and we ask that you please refrain from donating magazines.  We try to cycle the selection periodically and if a title does not move after an extended period of time, we donate it elsewhere.  To make our library we used almost entirely scrap materials, and as a testament to our craftsmanship, we're confident there is not a straight angle in the entire structure.

Our library is registered with Little Free Library, a nonprofit organization "that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world.  There are more than 80,000 registered Little Free Libraries in all 50 states and over 90 countries.  Through these Libraries, millions of books are exchanged each year, profoundly increasing access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds."
