littlelibraries-555x370-1480817-3230460Reno Vice­-Mayor and Councilmember Oscar Delgado has launched a “take a book, leave a book” project in Reno.

Four mini libraries will be constructed and located throughout the city in an effort to help promote literacy.

The Carpenters Union donated all the materials and built the four stands that will house the books. Local artists and volunteers will paint the stands. Installations begin in August.

“As public libraries continue to face budget cuts and even closures, my hope is that we can come up with creative solutions to promote literacy,” said Delgado. “I want to thank the carpenters, artists, and volunteers that helped put this program together.”
