Find Your Next Beach Read in South Walton’s Tiny Libraries
Who doesn’t love a good beach read? With your toes in the sand and your head in the clouds, stories by the seaside can truly transport you.
The only thing better than a good book is sharing that joy with others—finding and sharing books in unexpected places, like a small library box filled with the favorite reads of people passing through, looking for that next good story to dive into.
That’s the idea behind South Walton’s tiny libraries, a local book exchange program that makes it easy (and free!) to grab or leave a beach read. From children’s books to the latest thrillers, these little libraries have a big mission: to share the joy of reading and make it more accessible for locals and visitors alike.
Looking for a riveting read after a long plane ride or getting ready to hit the beach? Visitors can enjoy a good book wherever they are. Because many of the books feature a 30A stamp on the inside front cover, you can take home a paperback souvenir to remember the destination.
You can find your own perfect beach read at one of the following locations:
- Visitor Information Center in Santa Rosa Beach
- Santa Clara Regional Beach Access
- AJ's in Grayton Beach
- The Lodge 30A *coming soon*
