We Read!
A Celebration of Books and Community
In celebration of Orrville's Sesquicentennial, National Library Week from April 13-19 and our love of reading, we are gathering 150 of YOUR favorite family titles. Once our collection is complete, we will post an album with photos of your family and friends holding their "We Read" recommendations! Each family who submits a title and has a photo taken will receive a We Read window cling and a complete list of the compiled recommendations. If you'd like to join the fun, please call the library at 330-683-1065 or email Our appreciation goes to the Rotary Club of Orrville and the Orrville Public Library Friends for supporting this program!
