SIUE's Phi Kappa Phi Chapter Awarded with “Little Free Library” For East St. Louis Head Start Center

June 2, 2015

SIUE’s Phi Kappa Phi chapter has been awarded a “Little Free Library” for its participation in the Spring 2015 Phi Kappa Phi Book Drive. The chapter was among the top three winners, having collected 2,873 new and gently used children’s books from the SIUE and Edwardsville communities for the children of the Head Start program. Overall, 23 Phi Kappa Phi chapters participated and collected more than 14,000 books for children in need.

A “Little Free Library” serves as a gathering place from which community members can take and return books in the spirit of sharing literature and stories. With this award, SIUE’s chapter will receive a Little Free Library for the East St. Louis Head Start Center and $150 to cover the design cost for personalizing the Library.
