To the Delphos Community:

The Delphos Public Library has been a part of the Delphos community since 1912. While the library has experienced many changes over the years, one thing has never changed – the overwhelming support that the Delphos community has provided to its library.

The Delphos Public Library serves its community as a lifelong learning center. In 2012, the library was accessed by more than 10,000 patrons and circulated more than 195,800 items. That is an impressive number for a library our size.

In 2013, your Delphos Public Library became a member of the SEO (Serving Every Ohioan) consortium, which provides patrons access to more than 8 million items and the up-to-date ability to download e-books to personal reading devices free of charge. Passage of this Renewal Levy will ensure that exciting and educational programs continue to be available for children of all ages; that patrons will continue to have access to books, magazines, music, videos, genealogy programs, computers and online programs; and that the Delphos Public Library will continue to have the necessary funds to provide quality library services to the Delphos community in the future. This is not a new tax – it is a renewal of the current 0.6 mil levy which provides 13 percent of the library’s annual budget.

Please vote “yes” on May 7 for the Delphos Library 0.6 mil Levy Renewal. The Delphos Public Library needs your support.

Thank you.
