The New York Public Library is encouraging bookworms to pass around 25,000 free copies of a new paperback it will distribute in subway stations, on park benches and in other public places.

The book will feature a diverse group of celebrities — including Stephen Colbert, the Harlem Globetrotters and Yoko Ono — posing with or discussing their favorite artifacts from the library.

Starting May 19, books will be dropped off at park benches and in five subway stations. They'll also be distributed at the Fifth Avenue library and all its branches, as well as in some bookstores.

A note inserted in the book will instruct readers to leave it in another part of the city for someone else to enjoy.

It's part of the library's centennial celebration.
