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 submit a title and photo, 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!
