The race will begin at 9 am, starting from the Library. Participants will meet in the Frost Kalnow Room, around 8:30 am.
Participants may dress up in Santa Claus or Christmas-themed gear. The course will wind along the Sandusky River. Door prizes have been donated from local businesses and will be given after the race.
Participants may preregister for $15 per person until November 30. Registration includes a long sleeve t-shirt. Forms are available at Tiffin-Seneca Public Library, Fabrizio Chiropractic or here.

Proceeds from the race will benefit the Friends of the Library. The Friends of the Library organization supports T-SPL with monies raised through the book sale and other fundraisers held throughout the year. Funds raised in the past have provided financial support for the children and young adults’ summer reading programs, special events for adults and major purchases.
The Future Starts NOW!
Tiffin-Seneca Public Library has announced a renovation project that is to take place in 2016 and 2017. The Library is working with a company out of Columbus, Library Design Associates, Inc., who has met with the Library Board and staff to gain insight in order to redesign the interior of Library. Some of the remodel project objectives include:
• Updating interior and create a 21st century library for the community.
• Reorganizing space to maximize efficiency, improve lines of sight, and create a feeling of openness.
• Creating a Technology Center capable of housing current public computing resources and adapting to the future.
• Converting existing computer lab into an additional meeting room to meet the demand for gathering and collaboration space.
• Providing comfortable, usable furnishings optimized for technology usage.
• Providing a larger, dedicated space for teens.
Library Director Matt Ross said “We’re proud of our past, but we’re also excited about our future. That’s why we’ve take on a remodeling project that will help us transition into the 21st-century library our neighbors deserve, while maintaining the traditional services and welcoming culture we’ve always delivered.”
Ross believes that the remodel project will support programs and resources that will improve lives in the community, will help to achieve positive outcomes in areas that make the future brighter, including literacy, quality of life, workforce and economic development, equal access to technology and information, and lifelong learning. Finally, it will serve as a symbol of community service and pride.
