Local History Available Online

The Grove City Library's Reference/Adult Services Department maintains a joint collection of local historical images with the Southwest Franklin County Historical Society.

Using a tool called Content DM, reference staff are making these images available online for the first time to the public. The online collection can be accessed through SPL's home page. Under "Digital Image Collection," click the "Enter" button to access the website. The same link appears under "Research" and "eBooks and more."

New images will be continually added to the online collection from the more than 6,000 images that are currently part of the archive.

For more information about the collection, contact the Reference Department at 614-875-6716 ext. 503 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Book Club Kits

Are you looking for fellow book lovers to discuss your favorite novels with? Consider starting a book club. SPL has the tools you need.

Westland Area Library, 4740 W. Broad St., and Grove City Library, 3359 Park St., both have assembled Book Club Kits for patrons to check out and use for starting their own book clubs.

Each kit contains 10 copies of a title along with possible discussion questions, guidelines and other suggestions for how to get a club going. The kits also contain background information on the author, a brief description of the book and clips of reviews.

The kits are in black-and-blue SPL bags located near the Reference Desks of both libraries. Each kit contains a different book. The entire kit is to be checked out under one patron’s account, and that patron will be responsible for the kit, along with any fines or late fees that might accumulate. All books and items in a kit should be returned together, not individually.
