Missions & Services

In 2004 the Ohio Secretary of State granted 501 (c) (3) status to the Friends of the Buckeye Lake Library, Inc. as a non-profit organization.

Since the Buckeye Lake Branch of the Licking County Library System opened its doors we have experienced growth on a steady basis in the numbers of patrons holding cards, books and materials borrowed, participation in reading and other library activities and in computer usage.

Come by and visit your community library!
