The library staff is very grateful for the community’s support of the summer reading programs this year. Without financial and in-kind contributions from our Friends group, Wertz Variety Store, Troy Wal-Mart, Magel’s Dairy Bar, Wendy’s, Skateworld of Kettering, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the Ohio State Fair, the Merritt and Carpenter families and many generous individuals, the library would not have been able to offer the quality of programs our patrons love.
They are also extremely thankful for their volunteers: Elaine Pickering, Sammi Asher, Brianna Merritt, Olivia Brady, Riko Waymire, Tawne Estes, Ronnie and Trudy Heisey, Jeremy Heisey, Dave Madewell, Tim Koeller, Cassie Wheeler, Nick Wheeler, Jordan Pricer, Michaela Fullmer, Bethany Benkert, Emily Sowers, Matt Larson, Lizzie Fetters, Luke Ferguson, Rob Merritt, Emma Cooper, Tommy Smith, Judy Clark, Mary Larson, Alex White, Kaylee Louis, Marilyn Mitchell, Tyler Bilbrey, Brianna Merritt and Don Clark who gave of their talents before and during the summer.
