KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Little libraries are popping up across the world.

The world’s first “Little Free Library” was created in 2009. Since then, around 50,000 libraries have been placed all over the world.

The libraries are made from wooden boxes and offer free books. There is a spot on each box for visitors to give donations.

In August, two libraries were added to West Hills Park.
