Sponsor a Subscription TODAY!

Sponsoring a magazine is a wonderful way to help the library save money. All you have to do is select a magazine from the magazine list and pay for a one year subscription. A name plate will be placed on the shelf below the magazine to designate your donation. You will have the first opportunity to have the magazines when they are released for the book sale. Each year, a reminder will be sent to you if you would like to sponsor it again.

Here are the titles that are still available for sponsorship.  Contact the library for pricing details.

Research Library is Open

Bloomville School Replicas

1923 replicas of the Bloomville School are being sold by the Tiffin Alumni Association at Bliss Library for $15.00. The replica shows the school before the elementary addition was built in 1955. Many of you have the 1955 replica, so this would be an additional piece to your collection of Bloomville School memorabilia.
