About the Library


Wadsworth Public Library is an independent library serving the Wadsworth area, city, and township.

The Library is primarily funded by a set percentage of the Ohio state personal income tax and the proceeds from a local operating levy.

The Wadsworth Public Library has a seven-member Board of Trustees, each of whom serves a seven-year term. The Library's taxing authority is the Wadsworth City Board of Education, which approves selection of Library board members and which, at the Library's request, may place ballot issues before the public.

The Wadsworth Library is a member of the Search Ohio group of resource-sharing libraries which includes library systems from around Ohio, and OhioLINK, a network of Ohio's college and university libraries.
