YWCA Little Free Library Ribbon Cutting

The Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce congratulated the YWCA on the grand opening of their Little Free Library.  The Little Free Library is located on Buena Vista in front of the YWCA.  It is a Feeding Through Reading Imitative made possible through the dedicated efforts of the Coalition for Equality, a community outreach program of the YWCA of Pekin.

Funded by the Pekin Rotary Club, the library was built by Roy Johnson and decorated by Pekin Community High School art students.  The books were purchased through funding from the Pekin Kiwanis Club, AMBUCS, Pekin Altrusa Club, Y Reserves and many generous donors.

The YWCA has plans to install two more little free libraries in Pekin.
