Animal hospital turns 'Little Library'

Greenfield - MECA, a 24-hour animal emergency room hospital at 3670 S. 108th St., is now part of "The Little Free Library" movement, offering animal books for anyone to read and take home.

It is believed to be the first veterinary establishment to be part of "The Little Free Library" movement that started about a year ago. People visit the little libraries to both take and contribute books to them, though there is no requirement to donate books.

The "Little Free Libraries" are self-sustaining.
