Community support makes library thrive

July 16, 2012

Photo submitted - The St. Marys Lions Club recently presented the St. Marys Public Library with a donation of $500.  This amount was sent to the club from donors wishing to honor deceased member Jim Christoff, and was given in his memory. Pictured above is St. Marys Public Library Director Scarlette Corbin accepting the check from Lion Vince Leta. Corbin said community support and contributions of this nature have allowed the St. Marys Public Library to grow and thrive for the past 100 years.

Throughout its history, the St. Marys Public Library has faced challenges that threaten its operation, but the unequivocal support of its patrons has allowed it to thrive and grow.
Despite state budget cuts that have made it difficult to plan and provide the desired level of service for patrons, the library continues to strive to offer the best. Like everybody else in tough economic times, the community institution has rolled up its sleeves and dug in to weather the storm.
