The Wood County District Public Library is grateful for funding from the State of Ohio's Public Library Fund as well as from a local, 0.8 million operating levy. With this support, we are able to provide a wide range of services for our patrons.
However, we are always seeking ways to do more to serve you. The WCDPL Foundation exists to secure additional funding to enhance services and to build a source of permanent private funds. The WCDPL Foundation provides funds to support:
- Purchasing quality, in-demand books and materials that the community depends on to stay informed. The Library offers many resources to encourage early literacy development, family literacy, lifelong learning, and popular reading.
- Children's services & early literacy development, as research shows that today's library patrons used the library as children. Programming and special initiatives reach children and families, helping to make the library and reading an important part of their lives.
- The Foundation Series, which brings widely recognized and engaging speakers and authors to our community.
- Local history and genealogy services to preserve and share family and community history. Print and digital resources permit in-depth research. Digitization of local information (newspapers, photographs, documents, etc.) expands the library’s ability to deliver unique local content to the entire world.
- Facility investments because it is important to take care of the taxpayer funded buildings entrusted to us.
