ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Four community library boxes have been installed at Metro stations in north St. Louis County.

Metro leaders said this is a good way to promote literacy and reading. They also hope it helps riders enjoy their commute.

The community library boxes are stocked with reading materials like novels, magazines and children’s books. Riders can pick one of the books to take home and then they can return it when they are finished without any due date or late fees.

Metro Transit is partnering with the St. Louis Promise Zone and the St. Louis County Library for the project. Officials said the books in the boxes are surplus materials that were donated to the library.

The program officially began Thursday. 

Promise Zone community library boxes can be found at:

North Hanley Transit Center
4300 North Hanley Road

Wellston Transit Center
6342 Plymouth Avenue

Rock Road Transit Center
7001 St. Charles Road

North County Transit Center
