Library Celebrates 125 Anniversary Celebration!

The library was recognized in many ways on Tuesday, January 27 at the 125th anniversary celebration. The honors include:

• January 27 was officially designated Findlay-Hancock County Public Library Day by the Mayor and the County Commissioners.

• The library received a flag flown over the U.S. Capital from Congressman Robert Latta.

• The library was officially commended by both the State Senate and the State House of Representatives.

Mr. Jeff Winkle, Director, spoke at a reception and was quoted as saying "we never take for granted how blessed we are to work in a county-wide community that values reading. Findlay and Hancock County people are special. Our friends and neighbors believe in reading, education, family and hard work. The library is proud to support those attributes every day. On behalf of the administration and staff I thank the community for supporting the Findlay-Hancock County Public Library."
