Happy Anniversary to the T-LC Public Library.
Kudos to the Toledo Blade for publishing a special section containing 14 articles.
From the Introductory Article:
The Toledo-Lucas County Public Library celebrates its 175th birthday this year in a good place. Its lending collection is a muscular 2.4 million books, compact discs, DVDs, and more. There are 325,022 library card holders in the county and last year 6.9 million items
This Blade special section on the library’s big anniversary takes you inside the rows and rows of books, explores The Blade Rare Book Room, and shows you how the building on Michigan Avenue grew to 271,000 square feet. It features a profile on longtime director Clyde Scoles and includes renowned historian and author David McCullough’s comments on libraries.
