Resources in the Library 

     One of the guiding principles of the Findlay-Hancock County Public Library is that the library should serve as a central source of information about the wide variety of programs, services, and activities provided by local community organizations. In short, the library is a local information headquarters. We have taken several steps to provide a variety of means to get this information circulated to the community.  

  • Community Bulletin Board: We welcome flyers and brochures from local organizations, agencies, government entities, and community activities to be placed in the hallway leading to our Media Services Department. Please contact the Circulation Services Manager, Kayleen Veit at 419-434-1485 for posting your information.  
  • Training about Community Organizations: Library staff training regularly includes presentations about local non-profit organizations, so that staff can share information about local resources with patrons as appropriate. 
  • Community Displays: In our atrium, there is a space dedicated to local non-profit organizations to display information about their services to the citizens of Hancock County. Please contact our Community Relations Coordinator, Heather Rhoads to reserve a time to display information about your non-profit agency at 419-434-1480.
