Historic Lorain Branch of the Cleveland Public Library partners with global company known to beautify historical monuments    

CLEVELAND, Nov. 4, 2019: A unique partnership is helping restore one of Cleveland Public Library’s crown jewels. On Tuesday, November 12, 2019, Kärcher, the world’s leading provider of cleaning technology, will launch a preservation project at the historic Lorain Branch, an Andrew Carnegie library, located at 8216 Lorain Avenue. 


“The Lorain Branch is a remarkable Carnegie building. It is rich in history and it’s wonderful to have the opportunity to see its façade renewed,” said Felton Thomas, Jr., Director and CEO of the Cleveland Public Library.


The Lorain Branch opened in 1912 in the Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood. It’s one of 6 libraries in the Cleveland Public Library system built with money from Andrew Carnegie, a businessman and philanthropist who donated funds to create more than 2,000 libraries across the United States.


“As cleaning specialists, Kärcher has been actively involved in supporting the preservation of historical monuments and buildings, free of charge, for over 30 years with our Cultural Sponsoring program,” said Kris Cannon-Schmitt, VP Marketing Professional. Some of Kärcher’s world-renowned cleaning projects include Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, Germany. Kärcher will use the same steam cleaning and environmentally safe technique to revitalize the brick and stone trimmings on the Lorain Library.


This is a major step for us in maintaining our historic Lorain Branch. Kärcher's work around the globe is impressive and we look forward to them restoring the Library to its full glory,” said Kathleen Sonnhalter, Capital Projects Manager for the Cleveland Public Library.
