Funding

The Coldwater Public Library is funded through the State of Ohio's Public Library Fund.  This fund receives 1.7% of Ohio's total tax revenue.  Additional income is received from fines, fees and our ongoing book sale.  The library accepts books and other materials in good, clean condition.
 
Memorial gifts, bequests and endowments in memory of a loved one are welcomed.
 
The Coldwater Community Picnic Association purchases permanent improvement items for the library.  Recent improvements have been new computers for public internet access and our individual study rooms.  Also a colorful children's area rug and a mobile programming unit for us to use in our adult tech classes as well as our educational and informational programs offered to the community.  The library is very appreciative of the Picnic Association paying for these improvements.
