Get ready for a celebration 100 years in the making as the MidPointe Library System marks their centennial with festivities at each Library location throughout the month of June!

All celebrations run from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM and are free and open to the public.

Attendees can look forward to entertainment of all varieties, featuring multiple performances by Cincinnati Circus, bounce houses, free concessions and treats, inflatable rides, cornhole, vintage cartoon screenings, crafts, carnival games, train rides and more! Patrons will also have the opportunity to participate in a video "Wishing Well" where they can share their favorite memories of the library, wish the System a happy birthday and be included in a video commemorating this milestone in MidPointe history. Summer Reading Program logs and programming calendars will be available as well, to ensure the fun continues all summer long.

With the combined efforts of devoted citizens and a financial contribution by Andrew Carnegie, Middletown opened its first public library on January 2, 1913. The initial staff was comprised of four employees and the collection consisted of 3,335 books. As eastern Butler County developed and the service area grew, so did the local library. Starting in the 1930's, bookmobiles visited remote locations and branch libraries were housed in local schools. Permanent Library locations have since been established in both Trenton and West Chester. The current MidPointe Library System now serves a population of over 200,000 people with a collection of nearly a half a million materials.

The Centennial Celebrations will be held rain or shine, and as with all offerings from the MidPointe Library System, completely free.
