Have a book...give a book.

Need a book...take a book.

That's the philosophy of the Little Free Library, whose latest model schoolhouse was dedicated Tuesday at the Belpre Senior Citizens Center.

It's a local project of the Belpre Youth Chamber of Commerce.

It encourages people to donate no longer needed books for others who might want them.

"There's a big mixture of books," says Kelly Cox, Belpre Area Chamber of Commerce board member. "We have everything from the Bible to how-to books, romance novels; what anyone feels they want to read."

This book exchange is for senior center members, but the chamber has two others planned.

There are nearly 15,000 little free libraries throughout the world, with others being built.
