Here at the Garrettsville Library, we care about what you think. We ask that, when you have finished a book you’ve checked out, you give us a quick review of that book. Review slips can be picked up at the reference desk and completed reviews will be posted on the “What Do You Think?” book review board. Every month, slips will be collected and put into a random drawing for a small prize. Call 330-527-4378 for more information. Happy reading!

Tour of Local History Begins at the Garrettsville Library

The Garrettsville Library has begun a self-directed tour of local historic signs for community members. The scavenger hunt-style tour gives the address of six nearby historic signs. Each sign comes with a question and letters from each sign’s answer create a final question. Participants can turn in their answer to the final question at the Garrettsville Library and they will be entered into a drawing to win a prize. This is a great, family-friendly way to become familiar with local history while having a lot of fun. Tour and contest ends Saturday, July 30. Call 330-527-4378 for more information.
