A Little Free Library has been set up in Stamford to honor a Danbury woman who died of ovarian cancer in 2020.
Daniela Forte's mother, Tina Kadish, unveiled the library at Davenport Ridge Elementary School.
She says her daughter loved reading and always sought to give back to the community.
Forte passed away on July 2 following a delayed cancer diagnosis.
Forte's aunt, Annamaria Roberto, says it was a painful year that passed in the blink of an eye.
Kadish says her daughter's passion for books will live on at the elementary school she once attended.
The Little Free Library's starting lineup includes kids' classics as well as some of Daniela's favorites from Stephanie Meyer to J.K. Rowling.
Kadish wrote a chapter for the book "Success in any Season: Inspiring Stories of Power and Healing From Women Leaders," which she dedicated to her daughter. You can find it wherever books are sold.
