Library wants you to read a book, then leave it

JONESBORO, AR - (KAIT)  The Craighead County Jonesboro Public Library wants you to read a book, then leave it.

No, it's not asking you to check out a book and dump it off somewhere.

Instead they want you to take part in their new "Read Me, Then Leave Me" program.

It's simple.  Just log onto the library's website to track the location of a book that has been left somewhere in town.  Then go pick it up and take it home.

When you're finished reading the book, leave it somewhere else then log onto the library's website and let others know where they can find it.

Alissa Reynolds is the virtual library manager.  She says it's a free way to try a book and try something new.

"It gets you out of your normal zone of what you choose," Reynolds says. 

She says it may inspire you to try a new author or subject matter.
