Tuesday afternoon the Crystal Lake Kiwanis, Park District and Public Library dedicated a Little Free Library at the Nature Center on the eastern side of Veterans Acres.
It sits at the top of the hill off North Williams Street.
The Little Free Library has a cedar shake roof and overlooks the pond near two benches.
The idea behind the little lending library is to make reading material for both adults and children in their neighborhood.
One is supposed to trade a book with which someone is finished for another in the Little Library.
The trade is not a necessity, however, because the Friends of the Crystal Lake Library will periodically add books to the collection.
