Library Breaks Ground on New Mott Branch

Sojourner’s Truth Staff

On a blustery Aril morning, a standing-room only crowd gathered at the construction site to hear elected officials and Toledo Lucas County Public Library staff share tales and watch them break ground for the new Mott Branch Library.

Clyde Scoles, director of the Library system, opened with remarks on the importance of a public library system, words echoed by U.S. Representative Marcy Kaptur, who spoke of her realization in adult life that Americans have an easy access to books and that not all of the world’s population can claim.

Also on the agenda were Toledo Public Schools Superintendent Romules Durant, EdD; State Rep Edna Brown; State Reps Teresa Fedor and Michael Ashford; Toledo City Councilmen Tyrone Riley, Cecelia Adams, PhD, and Gary Johnson; Lucas County Commissioners Carol Contrada and Pete Gerken and Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz, a number of whom grew up in the area and frequented Mott Branch when they were children.

The construction on Mott Branch will conclude in approximately 12 months.
