Bringing books to kids


ROCHESTER, Minn. — There’s no excuse not to go to the library if you live in the Rochester area.
That’s because, all those books, are coming to you.
Rochester Public Library has installed thirteen mini-libraries in the Slattery Park Neighborhood.
It’s part of the Neighbors Read: Slattery Park Grant Program and is funded by the United Way of Olmsted County.
Library leaders say these new options make it easy for kids to grab a book and read.
“I think it is really important for kids to have access to books right there,” The Libraries Head of Youth Services Heather Acerro said. “And this is great because they can walk down the street and it’s really close to Riverside. So, if they’re coming from school, they can just stop and pickup books on their way home.”
She’s says they’ve seen success so far with the program and will continue to monitor it going forward.
