Thank You For Supporting Your Piqua Public Library

We are doing a happy dance this week at the Piqua Public Library, and it’s all thanks to you! The citizens of Piqua voted “YES” to renew the Library’s levy. The final vote was 70% in favor of the levy passing. These funds will go toward maintaining Library operations so we may continue to serve you, our wonderful patrons! 

Beyond Books: Libraries Create Community

Library Love

We recently asked our patrons and staff to share some of their favorite memories or what they love about the Piqua Public Library. We received some wonderful responses that we’d like to share with you.

I love my Library graphic

Jan P. said, “The building is beautiful, and the books are a wonderful escape... but the staff bring it all to life and are full of love! They are all super!!!” ? 

Our next series of Piqua Puzzles are going to be of items found in the Piqua Public Library. Put the puzzle together, and see if you can figure out where the object is in the library.
