Spark Your Imagination!



This summer, ages 14 and older can "Spark Your Imagination" at Bliss Memorial Public Library. Patrons are asked to sign their name to a star which will be placed on our “Spark Your Imagination” display. Participants will fill out a ticket for each book, audio book, e-book, or three magazines they read.  Weekly drawings will take place on Monday mornings at 9:00 a.m.. Tickets turned in after this time will be placed in the drawing for the following week. Three readers will be chosen per weekly drawing. All tickets turned in will be eligible for the grand prize (4 tickets to Kings Island) at the end of the program on July 28th. So while you are sparking your imagination this summer, fill out a ticket for a chance to win a prize.

Summer Reading Fun!



Children can pick up a timed reading record at the library through July 14th. Children are encouraged to read for an hour a week, once an adult signs their record, they may bring it to the library for a weekly prize, just for reading. It is that simple! So stop in the library to get your reading record.                                                   


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.

Rated R Silver Linings Playbook. I just finished reading the book in a couple of days. Good read!




Image of Django Unchained
Rated R Django Unchained. Looks good to me.




Image of Life of Pi
Rated PG Life of Pi. I wasn't sure about this movie when I took it home but it turned out to be one of the best movies I have watched for awhile. Highly recommended! We also have the book if you would like to check it out.
