Renovation Project Contribution Request
The library is currently making plans to restore the children's department. This historic room is in need of new shelves that are children friendly. The shelves are too high for children to access all the material. In the best interest of all the children of Streator, who visit the library, we would like the department to be accessible to everyone.
The approximate cost for the replace all the free standing shelving will be $18,000. At this time we are accepting donations to help us achieve our goal of reviving this wonderful room. The room will become a child friendly space where every child can browse the shelves for the new books we are currently adding to the collection.
Help us update this room so that the children visiting the library can enjoy the entire collection. Every donation will make a difference, every donation will count toward reaching our goal. We would like to have this project completed by June of 2015.
