Little Free Library

A Little Free Library has been installed at the corner of Tuxedo and Schaaf Roads. It is a free book exchange to encourage a love of reading in the community, for everyone, especially young children. Little Free Libraries are hand-crafted structures filled with a constantly-changing collection of books donated and shared by people of all ages. The books, for all levels of reading, should always be family appropriate.
The Little Free Library was constructed, painted and installed by Boy Scout Sam Wheelock as his Eagle Scout project. Sam had the help of his parents and the scouts of Parma Elks Troop #24 who also made the first donation of books. The project was funded by a generous donation from the Women’s Service Club and coordinated through the Community Services Department and Mayor Mike.
We are excited to have the library and it will be stocked and ready for book exchanges on Tuesday, November 30th. If you would like to donate books and the Little Free Library unit is full, please call the Community Services Department at 216-739-3702. Books donated through our department will be monitored but we cannot be responsible for those that are shared directly through the library.
The Little Free Library will be maintained through the Community Services Department and it will also be under video surveillance. We hope that everyone enjoys and participates in the Little Free Library book exchange!
