Project: LEARN is grateful to Eagle Scout candidate Corbin Cerny and the rest of his troop for the two wonderful Little Free Libraries he built and installed in Medina. The concept of the Little Free Library is wonderful: it’s a structure built to hold books, and community members can leave books for others, take books for themselves, or borrow and return books to the structure, anytime. Corbin created two wonderful structures that capture the flavor of Medina. The first, a beehive-inspired design, can be found at the head-end of the Champion Creek walking/biking trail on South Broadway near the railroad tracks. The second, inspired by Medina’s Franklin Sylvester Library, can be found next to Medina City Hall.
We are grateful to Sarah Jane Ingraham, longtime Project: LEARN supporter, for painting the structures.
In today’s Medina Sun newspaper, there’s a wonderful story about Corbin and the libraries he’s built. Thank you Corbin, the scouts of Troop 514, Sarah Jane Ingraham, and Linda Smalley, former Executive Director of Project: LEARN, for seeing these wonderful projects through to completion. See the Medina Sun story here.
