On Deck- Wednesday, December 15, 2021
WCBU's On Deck has everything you need to know to start your day for Wednesday, December 15. Our top story is about the newly formed Office of Firearm and Violence Prevention’s $250 million in grant funding – and how local Peoria organizations can be the most successful at getting funds. You’ll also hear about the impact of a 2010 renovation and expansion of the Peoria Public Library Lincoln Branch. WCBU’s Joe Deacon talks with 20-year library staffer Cynthia Smith about how updating the old 1910-era branch allowed library staff to reach more South Side youth. On Deck is produced by WCBU student intern Holden Kellogg.
