NB Public Library Celebrates 100 Years

First of several celebrations held last Sunday, with great community turn out!….

On Sunday, The North Baltimore Public Library kicked off their year-long celebration of their 100th anniversary with a standing-room-only crowd . The library opened for tours before the ceremony which began at 2:30 pm in the Wolfe Community Room. Library Board President Richard Van Mooy served as Master of Ceremonies.

The event included a flag ceremony by NB Boy Scout Troop 315, an invocation led by Reverend Ralph Mineo of St Luke’s Lutheran Church, and several words of congratulations from area dignitaries.

Among those present were: Mayor of North Baltimore Janet Goldner , who presented a proclamation; County Commissioner Doris Herringshaw; Chancellor of the Ohio Department of Higher Education Randy Gardner; Ohio State Senator for District 2 Theresa Gavarone;
US Congressman for the 5th District Robert Latta; Superintendent of North Baltimore Local Schools Ryan Delaney; NB Board of Education Representative Jeremy Sharninghouse; Library Board Vice- President Dennis Miller, who presented a special award.

Also in attendance and recognized were Wood County Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn, NB Village Council members and Clerk, all former North Baltimore Public Library directors, and all current and former North Baltimore Public Library staff members, as well as all members of the Library Board.

Closing remarks for the program were given by current Director of North Baltimore Public Library Mrs. Holly Ryder.

Following the ceremony the public was invited to participate in refreshments and performances by NBHS jazz band and NBHS choir and guitar ensemble under the direction of Mr. Ben Pack and Ms. Emily Meyerson.

Here are some quotes from some of the guests present at the event:

Randy Gardner “The millionaire and the unemployed both have access to our public libraries”

Theresa Gavarone “The crowd here today is a testament to the importance of this library to this community”

Bob Latta “4000 patrons at this library is fantastic. My dad would have been in the first class at the original library in the school in 1927. His family lived here before moving to McComb.”

Ryan Delaney “When I came here five years ago I asked people, “What are the best assets of this community?” When they said, “our library” I said, ” You mean the public library?” ” I had no clue why, but now I know. The people who work here are fun! “

Doris Herringshaw, “On behalf of the Wood County Commissioners we know you are very relevant to the community. We wish you best wishes for 100 more”

Rick Van Mooy ” I hope you will all join us at the celebration for the next 100 years in 2119. By the way, it’s a Friday. You’ll need to take a vacation day from work” 

Holly Ryder “My mission is to meet the needs of our patrons”

Stay tuned for additional planned celebrations throughout the year.

NB Public Library Kicks Off Centennial

At 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 10, 2019–exactly 100 years to the day after the library opened……


NORTH BALTIMORE, OH— In 1919, the Grand Canyon was designated a national park, Bowling Green State University fielded a football team for the first time, and the village of North Baltimore opened a public library. One century later, all three institutions are still going strong.

To kick off its centennial year,
the North Baltimore Public Library (NBPL) will host a public celebration in the
library at 230 N. Main Street at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 10, 2019–exactly 100
years to the day after the library opened.

The event will include remarks
by Randy Gardner, Chancellor of Higher Education for Ohio; North Baltimore
Mayor Janet Goldner; NBPL Board President Rick Van Mooy; and NBPL Director
Holly Emahiser Ryder. Additionally, there will be historical displays
throughout the library,  a performance by
the NBHS Jazz Band, and cake and punch for guests. 

The North Baltimore Public
Library was founded on December 10, 1918, when a group of citizens met and
decided to open a library in the village. By March 10, 1919, the group had
received enough contributions of books and money to open the library at 113 E.
Broadway in a room donated by J.A. Gibson, a local businessman. The library
moved to the then-new North Baltimore school building in 1927, where it
remained until moving into its current location in 1958. Since then, there have
been three additions and the building is now 13,600 square feet.

On March 10, 1919, the library
had 500 books, loaning out more than 200 the first week it was open. The NBPL now
contains nearly 70,000 volumes, including books, e-books, periodicals, CDs and
DVDs, and continues to enjoy strong support from North Baltimore and the
surrounding communities. Nearly 50,000 visitors each year make it one of Ohio’s
leading, small-town public libraries.

The NBPL will celebrate its
centennial all year with several events and activities. For more information,
