LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The city of Lafayette is expanding its libraries, one cubic foot at a time.

The city now has three new Little Libraries in area playgrounds. The libraries are filled with free children's books for kids to take home with them. They can then return them when they come back to the park. There's one at Hanna Center, Columbian Park, and Subaru South Tipp Park.

The idea came from a local moms club, to increase the availability of books. Club member Melissa Luebbe said the program encourages learning.

"When we go to the park and we borrow a book, we might bring a different book back or whatever. It definitely promotes that sense of sharing and generosity," Luebbe said. "If children can have books, they can read together with their parents. It just makes it accessible for kids to grab a book sit under a tree and read or take it home."

Luebbe encourages kids and parents to stuff the little libraries full with books from home.
