This month's featured new database is HeritageQuest, which  is an award winning resource that allows users to search census records, books, serials, maps and other historical records to trace your genealogy. Records are included for 60 countries, with coverage dating back as early as the 1700s. Find more detailed information here.

If you have questions about these resources, please make an appointment with Assistant Director Rebecca Wilden at 419-562-7327, ext. 106.


The Good Egg by Jory John

Meet the good egg. He’s a verrrrrry good egg indeed. But trying to be so good is hard when everyone else is plain ol’ rotten. As the other eggs in the dozen behave badly, the good egg starts to crack from all the pressure of feeling like he has to be perfect. So, he decides enough is enough! It’s time for him to make a change…Dynamic duo Jory John and Pete Oswald hatch a funny and charming story that reminds us of the importance of balance, self-care, and accepting those who we love (even if they are sometimes a bit rotten)
