Card Workshop

Saturday April 18
10:00-11:00 am
We are asking that you pre-register (so we have a good idea of how many of some materials we will need.)   Linda Thomas will be sharing her skills.  I have received some FABULOUS Christmas cards from her!  It should be a great workshop!  Last month’s cards were so much fun to make.

Upcoming Levy

The Wornstaff Library receives about $121,000 from the State of Ohio Public Library fund. This funding dropped from $153,000 in 2008 to a low of $118,000 in 2010.  At that time, we asked for a levy from the village and Oxford township to help us off-set the decrease in state funding.  Five years have passed and our levy is up for renewal.  The levy on the ballot on May 5th is a straight renewal and would not add any additional taxes.

The Village of Ashley and Oxford Township are not in the Delaware County Library District, thus these entities do not pay taxes to the Delaware County Library. The Village of Ashley and Oxford Township are in the Wornstaff Memorial Public Library District. Any library levies approved by these two entities will have levy proceeds that go to the Wornstaff Memorial Public Library.

In addition to Children’s story time, movie nights, and summer reading programs, there is a lot going on at the Wornstaff Library. We have parking problems on Monday evenings and Friday afternoons.  Boy scouts & girl scouts and 4-H groups meet here often.  We seem to be busier than ever, but that’s a good problem to have!


Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.   John Ruskin
