Let's walk through the new addition

Sneak peak prior to Saturday's library grand reopening

Let’s take a walk through the new addition and complete remodeling of the Ada Public Library to see what’s new prior to Saturday’s grand reopening. Ribbon cutting begins at 10:30 a.m. The celebration continues until 1:30 p.m. All are invited.

A large parking lot was constructed on the north side of the library, in an area once housing a large, brick Masonic building. Years ago the library purchased the Masonic building and lot. The area was rezoned educational nine years ago. Now it’s part and parcel of the library. The parking lot will be much more convenient and safer for patrons compared to the limited parking along Main Street.

Down on the farm

With chicks and goats

If someone can write an extremely popular book about a cat in a hat, maybe someone with imagination can write a book about chicks and goats.

Baby chicks and goats entertained kids at the Ada Public Library on Wednesday morning. Parents probably would not be serving broasted chicken for supper tonight, but goat milk may be ok.

Here, Quinn Spradlin, 2, enjoys seeing the baby chick held by Natalie Walton, library youth services director.

History lesson

Ada Dog Park meets fundraising goal

1,400 dogs in the vicinity of Ada just now wagged their tails

By Monty Siekerman
The Ada Dog Park has met its fundraising goal and hopes are that the park will be open by late May or early June.

The fence at the pool will be taken down and used for the dog park, so the opening of the park is dependent on the pool work. Many fence workers were on hand at the pool on Monday dismantling the old fence and installing the new.

Progress on the dog park was made before winter set in. The water lines are in, the shelter pad is down, the shelter frame is up, and the entrance area excavated. All of the equipment for the dog park is purchased and stored here.

NMM 6 is on a classic Ohio plate with Hancock County sticker. The Icon spotted it on Main Street Bluffton on a silver Toyota. Don't worry - it's not expired. We took the photo in February.
