Ankeny adds Little Free Library

Church members Rhonda and Jim Bingman installed a Little Free Library in the front yard at Ankeny (Iowa) Church of the Brethren, reports Northern Plains District.

“Memorial money was used to purchase the library box, post, and memorial plaque. The box is made from composite material so little maintenance should be necessary. Jim was the first borrower when he checked out one of his own books that Rhonda donated. A bench is planned to be added in the Spring. Hopefully the neighborhood and our own members will enjoy taking a book and leaving a book.”
