Christmas in Cardington was a wonderful night filled with holiday cheer and fun activities.
The Future Ready with the Library project is aimed towards helping middle school students get college and career minded. The Cardington-Lincoln Public Library was selected as one of the first 20 libraries across the nation to participate in this project - and the only library chosen in Ohio!
“I am excited for this opportunity to create a new program and to partner with the Cardington-Lincoln Schools,” said Hillary Scholz, the Youth Services Librarian. “I think it’s a great way to get younger, middle-grade students in the mindset of future schooling and learning opportunities.”
In 2011 our library became a founding member of the Consortium of Ohio Libraries, a loose affiliation of at the time 9 public libraries in Ohio. This group formed around one concept, the idea that there must be a better way, especially for smaller libraries, to acquire online catalog software than the previous model, which was to license a product from a closed source vendor. This group selected Evergreen, a free and open source software catalog and contracted with OHIONET, a library member based non-profit that is located in Columbus.
