B. Smith Gallery Unveiled at 
Medina Library

What do you get when you combine a love of art and a supportive former director? The B. Smith Gallery at Medina Library. On April 19 a group of friends and art supporters gathered on the third floor of the Medina Library for the dedication of the B. Smith Gallery in honor of former Medina County District Library director, Bob Smith. Smith served as director from the mid 1980s through 1998.

“Bob has been a long time supporter of the library both personally and financially. He always supported our Friends of the Library fundraisers, special teen art programs and much more. He’s a true friend of MCDL and one of our greatest advocates in the community,” says Carole Kowell, MCDL director.

“I’ve been working in and around libraries since the 70’s, and MCDL still owns a piece of my heart”, says Smith.

Women’s Clothing Drive at Medina County District Libraries

It’s spring-cleaning time. Give those clothes collecting dust in your closet a new life with a partnership between Medina County District Library and First Impression, Inc.

First Impression is a new 501C(3) organization that provides interview-appropriate attire to underprivileged women. The non-profit is the brainchild of Kathy Warner, a local businesswoman. Kathy’s goal is to give women confidence in their appearance when seeking a return to or a change in employment. Donation bins are available at all MCDL locations to accept gently used business and business casual clothing. Donations will be accepted through the end of June. Receipts will be attached to the clothing bins for individuals who wish to document their donation. MCDL.info
