PASCO, Wash. (AP) -- A Pasco man has built a mini-library to encourage people to take advantage of books, even though they have the choice of electronic media.
The library built by Steve Bisch looks like a large birdhouse and has room for about 40 books and magazines.
The Tri-City Herald reports (http://is.gd/dLv0O4 ) it sits under a blue spruce in front of his mother-in-law's home and has a bench nearby for people who was to stop and read.
Bisch says he got the idea from a TV program about the national Little Free Library program.
Users are free to take a book without signing it out or paying a free. Readers are encouraged to return it or replace it with another book.
The Pasco branch is registered as No. 1389 with Little Free Library.
