Welcome to Point Place Branch!
The Point Place community is considered the “best place, any place,” and your community branch strives to live up to this motto.
My library career started with a first visit to my local branch as a preschooler. My mother was an avid reader and dedicated library user and I was lucky enough to have these experiences early on. It is now my passion to provide a space to replicate these experiences for all of our library users.
Point Place offers access to a range of popular book titles, several computers for easy internet access, a convenient area for quiet study or for those just looking to enjoy the newspaper. We also offer weekly story times for children from birth to five years along with a play area for social interaction, a monthly writers’ group for budding authors, a book club that is always welcoming new members, and so much more.
Come out and visit the western most point of Lake Erie, stroll through the park next door, and stop in at Point Place Branch Library. We can’t wait to meet you!
Library service for the Point Place community began in 1926 when the Lucas County Library opened a branch in the former Point Place Junior High School. When Point Place became part of the city of Toledo in 1937, Lucas County closed this library. In 1938 the Toledo Library System opened a branch in the same location. The branch moved in 1942 to rented quarters on Summit Street and stayed there until a new building was built in 1964. The branch outgrew this site, and in 1999 it re-opened at its current location.
