GREENWOOD, Arkansas — Two Greenwood elementary school teachers are spreading love during the uncertain times of COVID-19 by providing free books for students.

According to a Facebook post from Westwood Elementary School, Mrs. Langley and Mrs. Wilson placed free books on a cart by the main door of the school.

The books will be available between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday-Friday. 

These are books that do not have to be returned to school, they are yours to keep.

The books are on the shelves according to grade levels. 

The top shop shelf is for Kindergarten-2nd grade and the bottom shelf is for 3rd-4th grade. 

"Take what you would like! Remember to practice your social distancing by letting one person make their book choices while you wait 6 feet away! We hope you will find something good to read during this time away from school! Happy reading!" the post read.
