Letter: WG program at Ada HS is a viable, appropriate and necessary experience

To the Village of Ada Community,
I am writing this as an outcry to our community on behalf of the children in our community that are enrolled at Ada High School. I am a proud alumnus from the class of 2014, but today I am not so proud of my alma mater. I write this letter with the utmost respect for Ada High School and the institutions administrators, as I have had the wonderful opportunities to work directly with students in this district; but I can no longer sit on the sidelines and watch our children suffer with no reason or response given. As an advocate for our youth in the community and the arts, I must provide my absolute support to them. 

Letter: Your vote matters

Vote yes for library levy


You have seen VOTE FOR THE LIBRARY signs in many yards in the Ada area.  Those signs are to remind voters that your vote matters!  We all have seen issues lose by one vote—that’s why your vote matters.

Have you visited the Ada Public Library recently or used their user-friendly website www.adalibrary.org?  At the library, you and your family have opportunities for free Wi-Fi, free computer usage, free notary service, voter registration, and excellent programs for babies through adults, including book discussions for tweens and adults.

Ada library offers many services, vote “yes” on Nov. 5

Letter to the Editor:

I have always loved to read and am very grateful that we have such a fine library in Ada. I know that funding from the State of Ohio has decreased in recent years, so we who use the library need to support it.

The library offers many services, a place for community meetings, a fun place for children to go to enjoy age-related programs, and much more. The staff works hard to make the library a comfortable, safe, friendly place to be. So I hope the citizens of Ada will consider voting yes for the Library Levy on November 5. 

Thank you,
Linda Ferguson

Letter: Vote yes for our Library

Dear Icon Readers, 

Having lived in Ada for 20 years, I can say with certainty, I never fully appreciated or realized the value and excellence of the Ada Public Library until about 5 years ago when our son was 3 years old. 

We were taking a walk down Main Street and it was the annual ‘Kick Off to Summer Reading Program’ which included sponsoring groups who brought farm animals, the local police and fire departments, face painting, a book sale, a balloon artist and so much more.  On this serendipitous occasion, we signed up for Summer Reading and took our materials home to begin exploring what would be a central focus of our lives from that day, forward, literally.

Letter: Ada Public Library is the greatest!

Please support it on Nov. 5 by voting "yes"

Icon viewers:
The Ada Public Library is the greatest! I stop by at least once a week to update my movie selection and reading material.

Through the library's website adalibrary.org, I can easily order movies and books from over 100 other libraries, allowing me to get items that the Ada library doesn't own. Along with popular titles, it's surprising how many old and obscure films are available!

The library's recent renovation is well done with bright colors, additional space for activities (check out the children's area), a nice meeting room and convenient parking.
