Services to Parents, Teachers, and Schools
Welcome to Sandusky Library
It is our hope that you will utilize our facility to its fullest extent. Our goal is to provide library services and resources for children from birth through adult years. We also assist parents, teachers, and others who work with children to find appropriate educational and recreational materials. Our staff welcomes questions and requests for services in person or by phone (419-625-3834).
Please take the time to thoroughly check out our website. It has numerous links for teacher resources, local history, and research sites using only one simple address.
