Take One, Leave One Books

Free classic books used in high school and college courses are located on the west wall in the Teen Scene. Grab a copy, and bring it back or keep it. Feel free to highlight or take notes in the books.

These aren't cataloged “library books” and don't need to be checked out, so no library card is required. Just take what you need.
