Patron Appreciation Day will be Wednesday, Oct. 21 at the Newcomerstown Public Library.

Because the staff has listened to what patrons want and the availability of funding, circulation has increased 49.66 percent in the last four years.

They want to say thank you. There will be three give-away baskets. One is a movie night basket. One is a basket of books for all ages. One has ear buds, speaker and is geared for listening. Visitors can sign-up all day to win one of these.

Special activities from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. with book give-aways. They encourage families to come together. There will be hot dogs, cookies and punch served during this time.

New patrons can also get a library card.
