Voters approved a 1.5 mill levy for Wright Memorial Public Library with 67.8 percent voting in favor of the tax levy.
"We are very pleased to have the support of the Oakwood community," said Library Director Kristi Hale. "We did not take this issue lightly; we know Oakwood taxes are high, and taxpayers deserve and expect a high return on investment. Now, amidst this unprecedented health crisis, we will need this local tax support more than ever as we face a new round of decreases in state funding."

Before the coronavirus pandemic, a normal Tuesday for Sarah Kallile and her daughter Lucy included a trip to storytime at Wright Memorial Public Library. There, Lucy would delight in the music, stories, and playtime led by librarian Karen Mills.
April 22, 2020 marks the 50th Anniversary of the first Earth Day.
During the April 7 edition of Terrific Tales, Wright Library's Karen Mills talks directly to children ages 3, 4, and 5 years old about why they may see neighbors, family members, and others in their community wearing masks.
In the video, Mrs. Mills begins talking about masks at the 53 second mark, answering questions children may have such as:
Is this mask a costume?
Can a person still talk when they have a mask on?
Are people who are wearing the masks scary or bad people?
