SwedishAmerican & Rockford Fire Opening Little Free Library in Southwest Rockford

SwedishAmerican and Rockford Fire Department are excited to announce it will open a Little Free Library on Rockford Fire Station 3 campus, 888 Marchesano Drive, Rockford. The ambulance themed Little Free Library will be located directly across from SwedishAmerican’s new Riverwest Clinic which is currently under construction and scheduled to open this fall, offering primary care, obstetrics, lab and imaging services. Stenstrom Construction is building the new facility and is donating the Little Free Library.

A ribbon cutting and celebration event will take place on Wednesday, September 12 from 3:30 – 5 PM at Rockford Fire Station 3. Neighborhood children and their families are invited to attend and enjoy after school snacks and a visit from the SwedisAmerican Caring Canines, SwedishAmerican’s mascot SAM and Rockford Fire Department mascot Sparky. All kids will take home a free book and other fun prizes.

“We are thrilled to partner with Rockford Fire and open a Little Free Library that will help promote literacy and provide local residents access to books at all times,” said SwedishAmerican President & CEO Dr. Michael Born. “This new library, and our facility that sits across the street, represents SwedishAmerican’s continued commitment to our entire community.”
