The board of commissioners last week approved a request by Dawson County Family Connection to allow for a partnership between the county and four organizations whereby "little lending libraries" will be placed on county land. The libraries are tiny houses that are stocked with free books for anyone to take or borrow and provide a place for community members to donate gently used books for others to enjoy. The idea is to "take one now, leave one later."
