CHIPPEWA COUNTY, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU) — Sledding is one of the activities many do to squeeze in some fun during the long winter days in northern Michigan.
In Chippewa County, there’s a unique program offering an additional opportunity for families to make that fun happen.
A partnership between the City of Sault Ste. Marie and the Chippewa County Sheriff’s Office helped create free sled libraries.
“Being a Sheriff is a lot more than being law enforcement or running a correctional facility,” explained Sheriff Michael Bitnar. “We encourage our sheriff deputies to be involved in the community in any way possible.”
Donations of sleds to the library project are being accepted and appreciated.
