Lorain County Little Free Library (LCLFL) began in 2013 with a $30,000 start-up grant from The Stocker Foundation (fiscal agent is Lorain County Educational Service Center).

LCLFL is proud to be part of a worldwide network of 80,000 registered Little Free Libraries following the national Little Free Library model created by Todd H. Bol.  Before losing his battle with cancer in October 2018, Mr. Bol was a frequent visitor to Northeast Ohio, making sure the program was implemented with love and fidelity.

Locally, and with the help of 60+ volunteers, thousands of books are shared annually through this special project.  The goals of LCLFL are to promote reading literacy, a love of reading among people of all ages, and to provide access to high-quality children’s books at various locations across Lorain County. 

If you would like more information about registering a Little Free Library, becoming a Little Free Library steward, or donating gently-used books, please contact The Stocker Foundation office.
