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.

Headshot of Ellie K
I am the library manager at Old Worthington Library. I love books that make me laugh, spend time in other (sometimes non-existent) worlds and make me feel all the things. When I'm not at the library, you can find me baking, puttering around in my garden and hiking/biking around Ohio.
