Little Free Libraries (LFLs)
Little Free Libraries in Tonawanda
Our newest Little Free Library is in the yard of Kathy Russell in the Sheridan-Parkside area of Tonawanda, NY. It is the result of a collaborative effort between Eagle Scout candidate Duncan Metlak and the Niagara Frontier Reading Council. Duncan completed three LFL’s, this being his final one to complete the requirements for Eagle Scout.
Kathy Russell responded to the Reading Council’s social media post looking for a home for a LFL. She has been very active in her community as chairperson of Sheridan Parkside Village Property Owners Association, Neighborhood Watch chairperson, member of Town of Tonawanda Crime Resistance Executive Board and ran Kathy’s Korner Book Exchange at the Community Building, among some of her community service activities. She was the first recipient of the Town of Tonawanda Community Service Award. Kathy loves decorating and we can’t wait to see how she dresses up her new LFL for each of the holidays, enticing children and adults alike to visit and peruse the books contained within.
