Every school day, the Westerville Public Library delivers books and other materials requested by students, faculty, and staff to 27 schools within the Westerville district through a service called Library Link. This spring, awards were presented to the elementary and middle school receiving the most items delivered during the school year – Huber Ridge Elementary School (1,099 items) and Genoa Middle School (1,268 items). Next year, the elementary, middle, and high school winners of this award will receive a free author visit at their school as an extension of the library’s popular Meet the Authors series.
Since 2004, the library has delivered more than 215,000 items to the schools, including almost 15,000 items during the 2017-18 school year. Details about this service are available at westervillelibrary.org/library-link.
