Check out the new bookshelf at the transit center, where readers don't need a library card or even need to return books.

A collection of books is now available to commuters who stop at the transit center, thanks to an agreement with TriMet. The books are all donated — and free of charge — so no library card is required to grab from the bookshelf. Readers don't even have to return the books when they're done, according to a press release.

Users of the grab-and-go shelf are encouraged to pass books on to someone else, too.

Books are provided by the Beaverton City Library and the New Friends of the Beaverton City Library.

The library hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday, Aug. 2, to kick off its new offering.COURTESY PHOTO: BEAVERTON - Beaverton Mayor Lacey Beaty cut the ribbon with City Councilor Nadia Hasan on Aug. 2 at the Beaverton City Library's ribbon cutting ceremony for its new Grab & Go offering at the Beaverton Transit Center
