Garrettsville – One of the newest features of the Garrettsville Branch of the Portage County Library District—there are several—is the LED sign installed in front of the building. It’s being used to better communicate with the community about the services and programs now available at the library. This includes open hours, holiday closings, speakers, meetings, special event—all of the things that are going on that the public is interested in and encouraged to participate in.

Donations for the LED sign came mostly from the Garrettsville Fraternal Order of Eagles, Aerie #2705, which was given over the course of two years. The remainder of the funds came from the Friends of the Garrettsville Library and various community members.

The installation of the sign was also a donation, via the Eagle Scout project of Isaac Russell (pictured above), who handled the organization of materials, equipment, skilled labor contributed by various companies in the area. These companies included Scotchman Electric ( labor and materials), Charles Burrows and Sons Well Drilling (labor and equipment used in excavation); Stamm’s Concrete (labor, equipment, materials). All local, professional, respected in their fields and community-minded. Thank you’s are in order all around.

Stop by, check out the new sign, check out the library and all of its activities. You’ll be able to see all about it on the sign.
