What exactly is a Book Cabinet?

At my old school we had an AMAZING literacy coach who set up a book cabinet for our school. She took a large metal cabinet like this one:

and placed it in the hallway so it was accessible to everyone. Then she went about getting donated books from parents and the community. All the books were free to children in the school and there were all levels available!

Since I'm in a new school this year,I am continuing the tradition since learning that many of the students here have no books at home. How can you build literacy without books?! I am excited about this new venture and have advertised to parents on Facebook, our website, and via newsletters. If you want to do the same kind of project, here's the image that I'm using!
