Ohio State Lima and Lima Public Library to sign agreement

The leaders of The Ohio State University at Lima and the Lima Public Library will gather to celebrate the partnership of the two institutions at 10 a.m., Friday, June 27, 2003, in the Memorial Book Room at the Lima Public Library.

The Lima Public Library’s latest outpost in the community will be housed in the library on the campus.

“We are delighted that these two great institutions can continue their long standing relationship in a way that is concrete and meaningful to the community we both serve,” said Violet I. Meek, Dean and Director of Ohio State Lima.

The Lima Public Library collection at the campus will serve the recreational reading needs of the students and staff at Ohio State Lima as well as the public living within the surrounding area. The Library will house a collection of fiction and nonfiction books, videotapes, recorded books, CDs, and DVDs. Currently, the collection is made up of approximately 900 items.

Anyone with a valid Lima Public Library card is welcome to use the new services. Interlibrary loan service between the two libraries is already available and will continue. Patrons will also be able to get Lima Public Library cards at the campus.
