The Alta Public Library is making room for many new books that will hit the shelves this month by offering the old books to those who are interested.
"We've been weeding out the collection and taking many of the old books off the shelves," Librarian Sue Pedersen said. "There are around 200 books laying on a table here, free to those who want them."
Pedersen said the used books are adult fiction with some duplicating new titles.
"We'll have free magazines too when I get a chance to go through all the old ones," Pedersen said. "If people from the community want the books and come and pick them up it helps us a lot."
Those books that are not picked up are turned over to Goodwill or sent to be recycled.
Some of the new books that will be at the library this month include, "Roses are Red," "Heart of the Sea" by Nora Roberts, the latest Oprah book choice, "Open House," "Dr. Death" by Jonathan Kellerman and "From the Corner of His Eye," by Dean Koontz.
