DETROIT (AP) — Police in Detroit want to help children in the city read more often.
The police department is partnering with the national Little Free Library and the Detroit branch of the Little Libraries on the effort.
Little Libraries will be placed at each city police precinct. Details of the campaign will be released Friday morning at Detroit Public Safety Headquarters.
A Little Free Library is a book exchange where books are taken and returned. Children can take and leave books as they please. The libraries are designed to promote literacy and a sense of community among area youth.
