Expansion of library service boundaries at Ida Rupp

Ohio enjoys one of the most highly regarded public library systems in the country, because Ohio citizens have steadfastly supported libraries with their tax dollars.  The customers of Ida Rupp Public Library are enthusiastic library advocates.  They truly care about their library, and they champion the role the library maintains as the center of the community.  

In 1922, the management of the library was turned over to the Port Clinton Board of Education.  Until 2012, the Ida Rupp Public Library served the Port Clinton City School District, which included Bay, Catawba, Erie, and Portage Townships.  As a county extension library, Ida Rupp was also responsible for service areas of the county without public library systems, including Danbury and Put-in-Bay Townships.
