The Peggy Ell Memorial Garden

The Peggy Ell Memorial Garden features lovely flowers which were specially selected by Des Moines County Conservation and Keep Burlington Beautiful to attract butterflies, a butterfly house, and an inscribed memorial stone.

As the President of the Friends of the Burlington Public Library and active member for years, Peggy profoundly supported the expansion of library services and promoting literacy. She was a treasured advocate of access and tremendous friend and volunteer who was fond of reading and collecting books.
