Firelands Regional Medical Center Employee Helps to Get a Little Free Library installed in Lorain, Ohio
(May 30, 2019 – Sandusky, Ohio) Firelands Regional Medical Center’s Counseling and Recovery Services in Lorain, Ohio was the cornerstone for the initiative to install a Little Free Library by their office. The Firelands Counseling and Recovery Services office is located at 6150 Park Square Drive, Lorain, Ohio 44053.
Constance Chrosniak, therapist II, at Firelands Counseling and Recovery Services, saw a need for the Little Free Library in the area and wanted to help. So, she started the process to have one installed by writing a grant to obtain one. It was recently installed this weekend.
Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world. Through Little Free Libraries, millions of books are exchanged each year, profoundly increasing access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds.
A free reading event for the community will be held at this location on Monday, June 24 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. There will be a storytime by the Firelands’ staff, free books for children (while supplies last), and refreshments. Please call the office for more information or questions: (440) 984-3882.
