Event Description:

The Toledo Public Library will be celebrating its 100th Birthday on Tuesday, August 2 from 5 -8 pm.  The theme is “A Century of Reading Fun!”

The members of the Toledo Civic Club established the Toledo Public Library in 1916.  At first, the collection was kept in members’ homes.  As it grew, a larger, permanent site was needed, so the Sherwood building on Main Street became the library’s first “home.”  That was followed by a building on the corner of Highway 20 and NE Alder Street.  In 1975 the current building at 173 NW 7th Street was constructed.  In the same year the City of Toledo assumed responsibility for the library. Past directors will be joining us for the celebration which will include a chance to look through our scrapbooks, a history scavenger hunt, and refreshments. 

The event will be held at the library in connection with the Toledo Police Department’s annual National Neighborhood Night Out program so there will be lots to do for the whole family. You are invited to celebrate with us. For more information please contact the library at 541-335-3132 or librarydirector@cityoftoledo.org.
