May 6, 2016 — SIOUX CITY JOURNAL | A squad-car-themed Little Free Library is now open for public use in the lobby of Sioux City’s police/fire headquarters, 601 Douglas St.
Built from a refurbished Sioux City Journal newspaper rack, the Little Free Library sports painted-on police car lights and the Sioux City Police seal. The library contains a variety of donated children’s books that anyone can borrow, then return or add a book of their own.
The police/fire headquarters’ library installation is part of a collaboration of the 2015-2016 Leadership Siouxland group and the Junior League of Sioux City, Knoepfler Chevrolet, Sioux City Journal and the Mayor’s Youth Commission.
The police/fire building is one of 10 locations to add a Little Free Library this year as part of an initiative to encourage reading in the community.
