Hello!

I'm the Branch Manager of Locke, Angela Bronson. I love working at Locke because of the helpful staff, the friendly customers and the great view of the Maumee River! Locke has a lot of offer like after school snacks, a video game lab and various programs for all ages.

I began my career with the Toledo Library in 2005, as a page. From there, I worked my way up into management. I have a master’s degree in library and information science from Wayne State University. At the Library, I'm part of our blog committee, Latino cultural committee and also work with various community organizations. My focus is on building community in Locke’s neighborhood. When I’m at home, I love looking for adventures, creating art and spending time with family.

I hope to see you soon at the Locke Branch Library!

History

The Locke Branch, which opened in 1917, was one of six libraries built in Lucas County with funds donated by Andrew Carnegie. The current building was completed in 2007, built with funding obtained from a 10-year bond levy approved by Lucas County citizens in 1995. This branch is named after David Ross Locke (1833-1888), one of the early owners of The Toledo Blade. Locke wrote the popular Petroleum V. Nasby letters which were loved by President Abraham Lincoln for their satiric abolitionist humor.
