BUILD Peoria project ideas are thoughtfully considered as to whether they are financially feasible, able to be completed within the designated build window, and can be maintained by a governing body at the completion of the build.


Dr. Seuss wrote, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Little Free Libraries aims to be a catalyst for building community, inspiring readers, and expanding book access for all through a global network of volunteer-led Little Free Libraries. BUILD Peoria members will expand this global initiative through the streets, neighborhoods, and communities that we call home and inspire the next generation of young readers and leaders.


The 2022-2023 project idea: Partner with local neighborhood homeowners associations to build Little Free Libraries throughout the city.  

Let’s BUILD the imaginations of our children through literature.
