When we look at our city we can comprehend the value of our outstanding schools, hospital and library. Ida Rupp Public Library is a showpiece of Port Clinton. We are so fortunate to have a library that serves so many people throughout Ottawa County.
With cutbacks already made, the writing is certainly on the wall of possible reductions in services and the use of library conference rooms, etc. If you haven't been to our library recently, you should see its update with all the new books that provide education and leisure reading. The children use the computers after school as well as the children's reading areas and the many school tours to the library, the summer reading programs and special community events in the conference rooms.
When we walk through the doors of our library we are greeted by a friendly staff ready to help us with whatever library needs we may have.
Let's show our support Nov. 3. Please join us in voting for the library levy. They have helped us for many years and it is time for us to step forward and help them.
