What’s Happening at Your Local Library?
We hope you had a wonderful and healthy holiday season. It was great seeing so many familiar faces stop by the library over the break! Thanks for stopping and we hope to see you again.
Our library is a special, magical place. We not only promote reading of the many books and magazines on our shelves, but we are also connected to 268 libraries across Ohio. In addition, we are able to order just about any book or DVD through the interlibrary loan system which covers just about every library in our country and even some overseas. If you need it and we do not have it, we can order it for you! If you like to read on your favorite app, we subscribe to Hoopla and Libby, where most items, including audio books, are available immediately. We can help you get started today!

The 2022 Great Lakes Island Basketball Tournament was December 2nd and 3rd. It was hosted this year by Beaver Island in Lake Michigan. The Put-in-Bay Girls took the championship trophy this year and the boys took second.
January is “School Board Recognition Month.” We would like to express our gratitude for the work our Board of Education members do. Each member brings a unique perspective and a different ‘skill set’ that benefits the group as a whole. While keeping our children’s best interests in mind, the board’s decisions have improved and expanded opportunities and programs for our students. Please express your gratitude to board members: John Domer, Karen Goaziou, Suzanne Kostura, Bill Market, and David Hill.
Congratulations to our choir students and Ms. Gay Pippert for another excellent holiday performance on December 8th. The preparation our kids put into this program was quite evident! Thanks for putting everyone in the holiday spirit.
We would like to thank those who contributed to this year’s Santa’s Shop. Our students thoroughly enjoyed shopping for Christmas gifts for their friends and family!
Thank you to the Put-In-Bay Community for their Scholastic Pajama Drive donations. Over sixty pairs of pajamas were taken to local transitional housing facilities! A special thank you to Elizabeth Heineman.
Our generosity gives people the resources and support they need and empowers them to lead healthier lives.
