(HARVEY COUNTY, Kan.) — The Harvey County Correctional Facility is getting a new library thanks to a handful of Boy Scouts.
Johathan Ruebke and his troop built and installed 22 shelves with donated wood from local businesses. The library and media center sits inside the correctional facility.
Renovating it is part of Jonathan's Eagle Project. Before there were on a few shelves and even those were broken.
"My mom and dad wanted one that I would really be passionate for," says Ruebke. "And I home school so I read a lot of books so I thought this one really fit me."
The project is designed to impact the community, but the facilities director of support services says it will do more than that.
