Letter from our director:
would like to express the deepest gratitude to the voters of Athens
County for their support in the general election [...] I and many
volunteers have been out in the community speaking with groups and
individuals, and the support for libraries throughout all of the
communities in the county is truly inspirational.
the passage of the levy you can expect the work we’ve undertaken over
the last five years to continue: with improved facilities, restoration
of services that were cut after the financial crisis in 2009, new
materials replacing outdated materials on our shelves, and the smiling
faces of our staff who are here to help you find whatever information
you need to make your life and the community as a whole better. We will
also be speaking with members of our communities again soon as we work
on a new strategic plan over the next year.
is no better investment of tax dollars than the services the library
provides to all of our residents and all of our communities, and we are
looking forward to continuing to demonstrate that over the next five
years. Thank you again for your continued support.
~Nick Tepe, Athens County Public Libraries Director
