Erath City Park now has a little free library thanks to the University of Lousiana at Lafayette.

On Tuesday, the university's nursing students and other officials were out at the park to install the library during a dedication ceremony.

The library will hold books and other resources that promote physical and mental well-being, hygiene, diet and exercise, and preventive strategies for better health.

UL Lafayette says the project was started by nursing students to address health challenges in Erath.
