BREAKING LIBRARY NEWS...
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.

Do you want to be a part of this year's Storybook Festival??
After very successful events in 2014 and 2015 with a combined attendance of almost 1,000 people, Tiffin-Seneca Public Library and Tiffin-Seneca United Way are partnering again to host the Storybook Festival on Saturday, October 1 at 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Tiffin Middle School’s gymnasium. This year’s theme is “Inspiring Young Minds, Inspiring Hope.”
The Festival has become an annual joint effort to promote literacy in Seneca County, with so much fun for the entire family. Local businesses and organizations host booths that have activities, games or crafts promoting a favorite storybook. Community celebrities and authors read stories and chat with children about their love of reading or writing. Last year, Books BACK, a local non-profit, gave a book to each child, while Batgirl, Iron Man, the Very Hungry Caterpillar and Curious George mingled with families. Storybook-themed food was available for purchase at the Storybook Café, hosted by Tiffin Altrusa and door prizes were given at the end of the day. Every year, it is a wonderful day of family fun, celebrating the love of reading.
The two organizations are actively looking for participants to help our community’s children learn about books and the joy that reading brings. They are looking for groups or businesses to host a booth, make a special appearance or, make a donation for door prizes.
For more information, please feel free to call Debby Roszman at the Tiffin-Seneca Public Library at 419-447-3751 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
