LEXINGTON, Ky (LEX 18) If you are looking for something to read this summer, you might find it on the side of the road in Lexington thanks to the Tiny Libraries throughout the city. The only problem is, some of them are running low on books and they need your help. 

If you see a book that catches your eye you’re more than welcome to take it, without a library card or a minimum age. 

The program has become especially popular at the Hope Center on Loudon, but because of its popularity, the Tiny Library nearby is running low on books. They are needed people to come by and drop off books. All you have to do is open the door and leave them in the Tiny Library.

"That would be great! Absolutely. Summer is a good time to be reading and we need some books," said Suraya Shalash, the Development Coordinator at the Hope Center.

You can return the books you’ve borrowed from the Tiny Libraries, or, you can donate books you don’t want anymore.

"If you are ever in need of inspiration and want a good book, this is a good place to do it," said Shalash.

There are now more than 30 Tiny Libraries around town where you can drop off books.
