If you head out to Echo Park Lake today, you might think your eyes are playing tricks on you — but rest assured — that's really a floating library in the middle of the lake.
In order to visit the library, you'll have to get friendly with a pedal boat to check out the new reads.
Thursday marks the first day of the floating library's weekend at Echo Park Lake. The library will feature books and creations submitted by L.A. artists.
Sarah Peters, joined us from on the show, calling in from the lake's boathouse. Peters is the creator of the floating library and she collaborated with local art organization Machine Project to bring it to L.A.
The library will be out on the lake 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.
