Your Key To The Entire World

The Ashland Public Library Board of Trustees has decided to move their upcoming board meeting from the Stockwell Room of the Ashland Public Library, to the Ashland County Sheriff’s Annex, located at 1205 East Main Street.  “We greatly appreciate the recent outpouring of interest in library business, and we want to make our meeting as accessible as possible.  It is important to the board to allow as many people as possible to hear our meeting in person, while not interfering with the use of the library by its patrons.  We are very grateful to Sheriff Risner for allowing us to relocate our meeting to his facility this one time, and we thank him and his staff for accommodating us,”  said Sandra Hedlund Tunnell, Library Board President.  The meeting will be held at its regularly scheduled time and date, August 11th, at 4:30 p.m.

At the Ashland Public Library, you’ll find a wealth of books, eBooks, audiobooks, and more. Please feel free to explore our online catalog, check out our upcoming events, or read more about the services we provide.
