GLASSBORO, N.J. -

Some new little libraries are making reading fun for little ones in one Gloucester County community.

On Monday, August 27th, officials with the Rotary Club of Glassboro and the J. Harvey Rodgers School officially opened their new Little Free Library box.

The little library is located right outside the school and offers free books for children and their families to take home and read.

Kids can even drop off old books to give another child the chance to read them.

Officials say the library box is a great way to get children excited about reading.

"It's always exciting when you get something new and different in your house and that's a great motivator to get children to read also," said Carrie Owens, basic skills teacher, J. Harvey Rodgers School. 

Rotary Club representatives donated three Little Free Library boxes that are located throughout Glassboro and each one contains a variety of children's books ready to go home with some little book worms.
