Public libraries are frequently referred to as “the people’s university,” and the Sanger Branch is no exception! Located in West Toledo and close to the University of Toledo, Sanger is one of the most easily accessible branches in the county and as a result is one of the busiest.

Sanger Branch strives to continue a tradition of excellent service as our diverse community grows and technology changes. Most importantly Sanger Branch is where people, stories, and information intersect and inspire every day. Sanger highlights include:

  • the indoor story park for children, inspired by award-winning illustrator and author Denise Fleming
  • programs for children, teens and adults
  • monthly exhibits showcasing local artists
  • multiple study spaces and meeting rooms for public use

A little about me: I began my career with the Library in 1999, previously serving at the Lagrange and Kent Branches prior to working at Sanger. Toledo is my hometown and I am a proud graduate of Libbey High School, Bowling Green State University and Wayne State University.

We know that Sigmond Sanger, the namesake of our library who also served as a Library Board President, would be proud of “the people’s university” that we have been and continue to be!

History

The Sanger Branch opened in 1950 and is named in honor of Sigmond Sanger, a prominent Toledo tax attorney and President of the Library Board of Trustees for 27 years. Since 1950, the Branch has moved several times to accommodate neighborhood demand. First located in the Colony Shopping Center then relocated to the Kenwood Shopping Plaza for more than 40 years, a new building was built in the year 2000 thanks to Lucas County voters and the generosity of the National Exchange Club.
