Bill Robbins and Connie Robbins: Wheatland’s Community Heroes
Through the generosity of Wheatland residents Bill and Connie Robbins, a book station was established in Wheatland, at the intersection of 50/550 in July, 2012. The Wheatland Book Station offers free Internet access; a variety of books, dvds and other items for all ages. Mr. Robbins, in explaining his philanthropy said, “I want to give back to the community.” With the Knox County Public Library Board’s enthusiastic support, Robbins purchased and placed a small building on an 8,000 square foot piece of property that he owns at 159 E. Old Highway 50. In addition to Internet access, the book station has a browsing collection of popular materials and a meeting space. A Little Free Library is located in front of the book station.
The Wheatland Book Station is open:
Tuesdays and Thursdays: 6-8pm
