CCS offers “Little Library” to community

At CCS, we sometimes say, “Community is our middle name.” While that’s literally true, it also reflects the importance we place on “participating and belonging” in our community. A fun example is our fairly recent building and registering of a “Little Library” at our Ft. Ethan Allen location. We have Sarah DeBouter, employment specialist in our Way2Work program, to thank for the idea and bringing together the team that made it happen. Here, Sarah tells you all about it . . .
