Little free libraries open in International District

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – There’s a new chapter in the move to get more books in the hands of kids in Albuquerque.

This weekend, a new little free library was built near Louisiana and Central.

Kids can take a book and leave a book. Those who don’t have any books can simply take one.

UNM is working with the International District to build the little libraries around that part of town.

“Our long-term objective is to create a new public space within this area that really represents the community’s stories, its people, its history, its land, etc.,” said Michaele Pride, a UNM urban design professor.

Four other little libraries have been set up around the International District.
