Donate Books and Games to the Little Free Library

John and Mariah Hanley with their three sons.
Do you have any books or games laying around that you don't want? The Hanley family of West Park is setting up a Little Free Library at Gunning Park Recreation Center, 16700 Puritas Avenue, and will gladly add your donations.

They are working with the center's manager, Joe Munoz, in setting up a dedicated area for the library and activity center. Now they need to fill it with items that appeal to young and old alike as seniors use the center as often as the youngsters do.

Drop off items during normal hours, generally 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Call the center at 216-420-7900 for more information. A grand opening and ribbon cutting of the Little Free Library and Activity Center is scheduled for Saturday, March 25, at 2 p.m. All are welcome for fun, food, and giveaways at the event.
