History

Old Worthington Library is Worthington Libraries' oldest location. Since its founding in 1803, Worthington Libraries operated from four different locations in historic Old Worthington before establishing the Old Worthington Library in its current location. Groundbreaking for the Old Worthington Library took place on July 4, 1978 and Opening Day was October 21, 1979. In addition to its public services, the Old Worthington Library houses Administration, Technical Services and Technology departments that serve all Worthington Libraries locations.

I am the library manager at Old Worthington Library. The only books I don't enjoy are ones where the main character dies— happy endings only, please. I aspire to be a good cook one day, but I still burn or undercook almost everything. I should probably read one of the cookbooks I check out from the library, instead of just looking at the pictures
