In January 2018, the Wood River Public Library purchased the property next to the current building. At the time there was a residential home on this land. In March 2018, the home was torn down leaving the library a prime location to create something new and needed in our community. Library staff felt there was a need to provide fresh produce for the community, as well as a place to learn gardening skills. Thus, the idea for a community garden was formed. The summer of 2019 will mark the first planting season this garden will see.
