Library to Open Operations Center

Facility will be housed in former Roger Storer Plumbing location

(Springfield, OH--)

The Clark County Public Library has acquired the former Roger Storer Plumbing site, located at 315 South Center Street, Springfield, Ohio 45506, as an Operations Center for the library system.

Purchase of the building was finalized in December 2023 at a cost of $845,000.

In addition to housing the administrative functions of the library, the site will allow for the consolidation of storage and Bookmobile/Outreach functions for the library system. The new site will also contribute to a more streamlined approach to our material delivery, getting items in customers hands much sooner, especially with the expansion of our two upcoming branches at 191-193 South Tuttle Drive (Tuttle Branch) and on Middle Urbana Road (Northridge Branch), both in Springfield.

According to Library Director, Bill Martino, “We had been looking for some time for a facility that we could utilize for additional storage purposes and, potentially, to house library offices and the bookmobile/outreach department. We were, to put it mildly, thrilled, when the Storer Building came up for sale. We were also very impressed with the building and grounds themselves and how well Roger Storer maintained them. He was great to work with and is a real credit to this community. We are now in a position to continue all that our library offers both inside the physical libraries themselves and out in community as well through outreach and bookmobile services.”

The Clark County Public Library had a circulation of over one million items in 2023 and saw on average, over 25,000 visitors a month through our doors system wide.
