Sign up little readers for the sweet gift of reading

The State of Ohio has a reminder for those of us with little readers: “Valentine’s Day is so sweet, just like the Imagination Library!” which mails kids one book each month until their 5th birthday. 

All kids in Ohio between birth and age 5 are eligible to be enrolled in the program at no cost to their family. Through a partnership with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and local affiliates, this program is available at no cost to families.

New youth services librarian at Ada Public Library

The Ada Public Library has a new youth services librarian, Chloe Rieder. She joined the staff the first full week of 2022.

The Icon sat down to talk with Rieder (pronounced “reader”) on a Monday morning when the library hosts drop-in toddler play. Rieder’s first guest was Jolene McCoy (pictured below), the daughter of Elspeth and Ray McCoy of Ada. This was Jolene’s first visit to the library and she had a marvelous time exploring the books and toys in the children’s area.

Rieder returned to her hometown of Jenera in 2021. She has a bachelor’s degree from Heidelberg University and a Master of Library and Information Science degree from University of Missouri-Columbia.
