As part of our ongoing efforts to serve our patrons effectively, the Findlay-Hancock County Public Library will be switching over to a new website design within the coming weeks. Much of the organization and content will remain the same, but the new design should make it easier to find information on library services, events and news. We look forward to unveiling the new design soon.
