In an effort to make books available to all, the Big Rapids Community Library has donated baskets of children's books to local businesses and doctors’ offices. We want to encourage parents to read to their children while they wait or have children read the books themselves. These books stay at the business or doctors' offices to be used again by other community members. The baskets are maintained by the Library and switched out every 6 months to ensure a variety of reading choices around town.
