Vigo County now has seven "Little Free Libraries."

The Vigo County Public Library held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the wooden libraries.

The idea is for people to take a book and then later return it or just leave another book in its place.

The library director says the "Little Free Libraries" came about after most of Vigo County's library branches were closed three years ago.

This will help people get books, who may not be able to make it to the main library or West Terre Haute branch.
