Santa came to visit children at  Bliss Memorial Public Library Saturday December 6th from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Children shared their Christmas wish lists and Santa handed out 65 goodie bags to area children. Goodie bags were provided by the American Legion Auxillary Caufield Unit 434, Bliss Memorial Public Library, Bloomville Chiropractic, Bloomville EMS, Bloomville Fire Department, Bloomville Lions Club, Customers of TJ's Drive Thru, First Bank of Ohio, Hickory Inn, Kut & Kurl, Lease Farms, Pepperidge Farm, Gerald and Nancy Smoot, Sons of the Legion, TJ's Drive Thru, and Richard Vaughn. Extra goodie bags were given to Out & About Preschool, located at Garlo Heritage Nature Preserve as well as the Bloomville Lions Club for their Christmas party. We would like to thank everyone for their generous donation and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Sponsor a Subscription TODAY!

Sponsoring a magazine is a wonderful way to help the library save money. All you have to do is select a magazine from the magazine list and pay for a one year subscription. A name plate will be placed on the shelf below the magazine to designate your donation. You will have the first opportunity to have the magazines when they are released for the book sale. Each year, a reminder will be sent to you if you would like to sponsor it again.

Here are the titles that are still available for sponsorship.  Contact the library for pricing details.

Bloomville School Replicas

1923 replicas of the Bloomville School are being sold by the Tiffin Alumni Association at Bliss Library for $15.00. The replica shows the school before the elementary addition was built in 1955. Many of you have the 1955 replica, so this would be an additional piece to your collection of Bloomville School memorabilia.
