Clyde Scoles, Director/Fiscal Officer of the Toledo Lucas County Public Library, was named recently to the Board of Directors of the Ohio Humanities Council. (www.ohiohumanities.org) Scoles, an Ohio Library Council Hall of Fame librarian, was named to a three-year term to the Ohio Humanities Board, with his appointment beginning officially on November 1, 2017.

As a board member, Scoles will serve as an advocate for the public humanities by promoting the mission and vision of Ohio Humanities to sustain vibrant communities and foster lifelong learning.

“This is a true honor to be selected to serve on the Ohio Humanities Board of Directors. The core values of the Humanities aligns with my own personal beliefs – to connect us with other people and to help us address the challenges we face together in our families, our communities, and as a nation. I am anxious to contribute what I’ve learned along my path,” said Scoles.

Ohio Humanities Board members are charged with sharing their wisdom and experience, attending quarterly business meetings, participating on committees, reviewing grant applications, evaluating projects, and acting as liaisons with various audiences and civic leaders.  In addition, board members are asked to assist with development activities and to make annual contributions to Ohio Humanities.

Ohio Humanities is the state-based partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Through grants and public humanities programs, the Council’s goal is to help Ohioans interpret the past, imagine the future, and define individual values. Providing financial support through grants for community projects, exhibits, and activities, Ohio Humanities partners with cultural organizations to present book festivals and public activities, and to promote heritage tourism in Ohio.
