Second Baptist Church of Petersburg recently donated two Little Free Libraries to Petersburg City Public Schools.
The Progress-Index reports that pastor Rev. Dr. Joseph T. Lewis, a former BGAV President, gave remarks at the ribbon-cutting ceremony on June 5:
“We at Second Baptist Church are happy to present a Little Free Library to Walnut Hill and to Westview,” Dr. Lewis said. “We do so because we believe in children, we believe in the city of Petersburg, and we want to help promote literacy in the city. We also want to help promote community in the city. The Little Free Library is an opportunity for communities to come together, especially in promoting literacy.”
