Kidz Eatz Weekend Meal Program
 
We learned over time that many of the students at Yankeetown School did not have meals at home on weekends.  When some return to school on Monday morning they have not eaten since Friday. This was unacceptable and we needed to fix it! Through the generosity of the Community we are sending 7 meals and snacks home with 36 students.

AF Knotts Public Library  

The Yankeetown Library was opened in January 1959.  It began with one thousand donated books. In December 1974 we received as a gift, the building that is today the AF Knotts Public Library. To this day we own and maintains the Library through donations, fund raisers and communtiy involvement.  We are proud to be one of the only Woman's Clubs in the State of Florida that still owns and maintains a Library building

 

The AF Knotts Library is located between the Woman's Club and the Post Office on 56th Street in Yankeetown.  Run by the Levy County Library System, they provide many services to the residents of Yankeetown, Inglis and the surrounding areas.
