LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The Children's Museum of La Crosse is encouraging you to swing by and take a book home.
The museum is now an acting sponsor of the state-wide reading movement called "Little Free Library."
Kids can stock up on free books at the museum, take them home, and return with books to contribute back to the library.
The purpose of the the book exchange is to promote reading and creativity within the community.
The free library is something the museum has had its eye on for a while. "We've been kind of watching these "Little Free Libraries" develop around the area and have wanted to have one here because obviously stress the importance of learning and familes doing things together and reading is a great way to do that," said the Children's Museum Marketing Dir. Leanne Poellinger.23957330
You do not have to be a member of the Children's Museum to take part in the "Little Free Library" program.
