Welcome to the West Toledo Branch!
Community gathering spot. Place to create and learn. Heart of Library Village.
Enter the West Toledo Branch and you will find historic architecture blended with current technologies, services and programs for all ages. For adults, we have several book clubs, a knit and crochet club, and programming for grandparents who are raising their grandchildren. Children and teen visitors enjoy storytimes, technology programs and much more. For our creative customers we have a recording studio and 3D printer. We have two community meeting rooms and partner with community organizations to offer GED classes and Connecting Kids to Meals (providing afterschool meals during the school year and lunches in the summer).
West Toledo opened in its present building in 1930. In 2001 it was remodeled and expanded. In 2013 it closed temporarily for one year to upgrade again, and expand from 18,987 to 21,515 square feet; re-opening to the public in 2014. Renovation includes exciting digital features such as the system’s first-ever 3D printer and a creation studio complete with GarageBand for Mac. This branch is such a beloved community center that the entire neighborhood is called Library Village.
