Banner photo: A brand new Little Free Library was just installed by Rhonda and Jim Bingman in the front yard at the Church of the Brethren at Ankeny. 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.  Photo by Rhonda Bingman.  Send in your photos for future newsletters!  Email communications@nplains.org.
