ALBANY, GA (WALB) - If you are looking for a good book to read, you can now find one at Chehaw Park.

The Deerfield-Windsor National English Honor Society unveiled their Little Free Library outside the park's gift shop Thursday.

The Little Free Libraries offer a free exchange of books and the Chehaw library is especially looking for people to donate books for children.

"It is basically give a book and take a book. You can just bring old books from home that you have already read and put them in the box and get a new one." said English Honor Society President Emily Pursel.

Chehaw director Doug Porter said many of the parks 40,000 to 50,000 visitors each year are children.

This is the third Little Free Library in the Albany area.
