Fight Crime: Read Books!

The St. Louis police department has made its own "take a book," "leave a book" book stand and has stocked it with books for children. Modeled after the "Little Free Library" concept that Todd Bol started to honor his mother, the department hopes that kids will take a book and keep a book, their twist on the concept. Just goes to show that literacy, so intrinsically important, can have unforeseen benefits beyond personal happiness. Who would have thought? (Librarians, that's who!)
