Summer Reading Thank You

Summer Reading 2016 is over and we’re finally getting around to cleaning up, packing away, and saying THANK YOU!!

We'd again like to thank everyone for participating in Summer Reading 2016!
Our numbers this year were our best ever:

Library awarded Guiding Ohio Online/Americorps Grant for 2nd year

The Ada Public Library is pleased to announce that they've been awarded a 2nd Year of the Guiding Ohio Online Americorps grant, which means that the Library's Tech Volunteer, Max Gauthier, will be assisting community members at the Ada Public Library through the summer of 2017!

524 participants - this summer's magic number

The sign, in front of Ada Public Library,  says it all. Congratulations to Amanda Bennett, Natalie Walton, staff, and board members for a super successful summer reading program. (Monty Siekerman photo)
