St. Louis County Library is launching a new program in September called Recycled Reads. The program takes surplus library materials and gives them another life by circulating them throughout the community, encouraging people to read while they wait. Displays will be set up at over 60 locations throughout St. Louis County where people typically spend time waiting including laundromats, hair/nail salons, health care providers, auto care shops and more. A complete list of Recycled Reads locations is available at www.slcl.org/recycled-reads.
Recycled Reads will include books and magazines for all ages. No library card will be required to borrow the materials. There are no fines or due dates. Individuals are asked to return the items whenever they're finished to the original locale.
Eric Button, Assistant Director of Branch Services, says, "Recycled Reads is yet another example of St. Louis County Library meeting people where they are by offering library services outside of our buildings."
SLCL has been increasing community outreach efforts in 2013, bringing the library to communities and individuals who might not otherwise be able to visit a branch. Recycled Reads makes reading convenient and accessible for those with busy schedules and precious little free time for recreational reading. The program will expand to additional sites throughout the county, visit www.slcl.org/recycled-reads for updates.
