MPLC Connection

This newsletter is intended to keep the library boosters of the Marblehead, Ohio area informed about the progress of their library. Volume 1, issue 1 came out in Fall 2005 and reported that they had a building, the 1914 quarry hospital building in downtown Marblehead. Also there was an update on the book shop, Ex Libris in the Kukay building.

Although I can't find an article about it on the web, I think the original plans for the hospital building fell through due to remodeling and safety costs, and the Ex Libris book shop has since moved to a house and they are now loaning books. The organization has a web site, and is still raising funds for a library building. This grass roots effort on the part of volunteers is the way many communities started their public libraries.
