Visitors to the Butterfly Memorial Garden in Buhl Farm Park can now stop and share a good book.
The “Little Free Library” was dedicated Sunday to help the Shenango Valley community.
The library is in memory of Danielle Greenburg, who passed away from cancer. Her mother, Rene McIntire, started the charitable organization, Team Danielle, and wanted to do something to give back to the community.
Kids can borrow books, keep them and replace them with other books, or just sit in the park and read.
“My daughter was a children’s librarian, and so we thought we would put the library in the park and fill it with children’s books, so that when the kids are here playing, or walking on the trail they can stop and read a book…Take one home if they want to,” said McIntire.
A Hermitage man offered to build the Little Free Library for Team Danielle. A bench was also placed in her memory.
McIntire said thanks to donations, they have more than 1,000 books to keep the library stocked all summer and beyond.
