The Frederick Police Activities League, or PAL, is hoping to help young readers find their wording one book at a time thanks to a new library.
The organization promotes positive relationships between police officers and city youth.
As a result, they have welcomed a little library outside their Lucas Village PAL location.
Officials say volunteers helped build the library and it now houses more than 50 books.
Officials are hopeful the free library will encourage readers of all levels, and an added prize may help even more.
“We’re starting an incentive program and we’re hoping that if the kids read three books they’ll come and tell an officer about their books and then we’ll have a little prize box. Many of our kids are reading below grade level and we’re hoping to help bridge that gap,” explained president of the Police Activities League, Jennifer Koselak.
The little library is open to the public for free 24-hours a day.
