Local nonprofit Scooby Van of San Antonio is expanding with a new South Side chapter, KSAT reports.

The Scooby Van, which is painted like the Mystery Machine from classic cartoon Scooby Doo, acts as a mobile little free library, distributing books to underserved children in San Antonio.

The new local, Latina-owned magazine Live from the Southside will take the lead on the new chapter, teaming up with small businesses to install little free libraries on the South Side.

"We are all so excited about doing this for our community and hope that these little libraries are cared for and they bring joy to our neighborhoods," April Monterrosa, editor in chief of Live from the Southside, told KSAT.

Brooster's Backyard Icehouse will host first of the planned little free libraries, and will also have a book drop-off as well.

On Saturday, December 26, the South Side Scooby Van will celebrate the launch of the first library at Brooster's Backyard Icehouse with free books and Scooby snacks for kids from 4-7 p.m.
