Famous Characters and Authors

The Ada Public Library was recently the recipient of art work donated by Ohio Northern University student, Abby Brown.

Brown, (Majoring in Advertising Design, Minoring in Marketing) created a literary alphabet--which now hangs in the Ada Public Library's Reading Room--in Professor Melissa Eddings Mancuso's Art 3301 Screenprinting.
