Funded by the Friends of the Wapakoneta Library and a grant from Midwest Electric, and boosted by a donation of pans from Reed Memorial Library in Ravenna, Ohio, the Kitchen Collection makes available those special and unusual pans you might need to add an extra layer of festivity to your party.
The BEST part is: YOU CAN CHECK THEM OUT JUST LIKE A BOOK!!!

Thankfully we have worked with the New Bremen Village Office to reschedule the pool time that was compromised on Sunday night, July 23rd due to weather.
The rescheduled rain date of the New Bremen Pool Party is - Thursday, August 10th from 9-11pm at the New Bremen Pool. As we have already distributed prizes and snacks, we will not be able to offer anything more than free pool time.
This rescheduled Pool Time is open to all New Bremen Pool Party #1 Attendees that had already turned in their pool passes on Sunday night (7/23/17). It will ALSO be open to any other Pool Pass Holder that did not yet turn in their Pool Party Pass to either Party. If you have any questions, please call or email the libraries.
It’s finally time to OPEN OUR DOORS!

[Update: May 13, 2020] — Reopening Plan
Dear Library Customer,
We are anxious and ready to see you again soon. As the state begins a slow and responsible reopening process, trust that Auglaize County Public District Library System will be busy putting our staff through training, retrofitting our spaces to meet social distancing guidelines, ensuring we have the necessary PPE and policies in place to keep people and staff safe, and maturing new low- and no-contact service models for meeting community needs.
We will begin our phased reopening plan on Monday, May 18th with curbside/drive-thru pick up by appointment. The following phases will depend on several factors, including guidance from local, state, and national health officials and the availability of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for our staff. We will provide advance notice and specifics of locations and services as soon as it is available.
While our locations are closed, the Library is not closed for business. You can access so many resources at www.auglaizelibraries.org, including downloadable eBooks and audiobooks, streaming movies and music, magazines, and using online learning tools such as Lynda.com.
We are glad so many of you are staying connected to us digitally and it is our pleasure to support you. Please stay safe and hopeful until we can welcome you back to our locations.
