(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A Savannah High School student is setting up little libraries across the St. Joseph area for his Eagle Scout project.

Marcos Alvarez will set up a total of 10 libraries when all said and done and two were set up at Mosaic Life Care on Monday.

“It’s about promoting literacy and just the general idea that reading is a great thing,” Alvarez said.

With the library, you can take a book and put it back or just take it. You can also leave a book at the location, too. 

Staff at Mosaic Life Care is excited to have these in the hospital.

“The free little libraries will serve as a tool," Glen Taylor, President of Guest Services at Mosaic Life Care, said. "Not only to help our families be more at ease, but also to allow our patients to dig deep into a book, maybe perhaps take their mind off of their circumstances.”

One of the libraries is located in the intensive care unit lobby and the other near guest services. 

“It’s great. The idea that people are going to use these things," Alvarez added. "No matter the situation that they are in, they can learn something. “
