The Lakeview Ledger

Do you like to write? Do you think you’d like to learn more about how newspapers are put together?

The Lakeview Ledger is an entirely kid-created newspaper facilitated by Peoria Public Library and paid for by the Friends of Peoria Public Library. The youth in the community wanted a newspaper where they had creative license to put the things they wanted into their own newspaper. Creating content, coming up with a name for the newspaper, editing, and working together on the layout were all done by the kids involved in the Newspaper Club at Lakeview Branch.

The Lakeview Ledger is the summation of all their hard work. The program continues to serve as an excellent opportunity to teach our junior journalists about media and information literacy and ethical journalism.

We are currently seeking submissions for our next edition.  This club is open to kids ages 8 to 17.

The next meeting is Wednesday, Nov. 17 at 4:30 p.m. at Lakeview Branch, 1137 W. Lake Ave. 

Copies of the Lakeview Ledger are available at any of our five locations. While supplies last.
