One of our community impact initiatives focuses on the importance of literacy. During our second annual Day of Caring Event, volunteers painted old newspaper dispensers donated by Sauk Valley Media. Dispensers were installed at 4 Dixon parks by the Dixon Park District. Books donated by the community during our community drive in 2015 were placed in each dispenser. The community response has been amazing. Many have donated books since. The concept is easy. Take a book, leave a book or simply borrow the book for a little while and bring it back.
Current Locations: Wooden Wonderland, Dixon Bike Path on Washington Ave, Splash Pad, Ballou Park, Teen Turf Amboy, Ashton High School.
We thank the staff of the Dixon Park District for their continued support with this program. They maintain the libraries and make any necessary repairs throughout the year!
