Licking County Library Featured Location - Main (Downtown Newark)

To kick off this month's featured location, Main Library, we have an introduction from Babette Wofter, Director of Licking County Library. Babette has been Director for over six years, and 2017 marks her twenty-eighth year in public libraries. She has also been a Children’s Librarian, Head of Children’s Services, and Assistant Director. Babette is a graduate of Maysville High School, Ohio University (BSED) and Kent State University (MLS). She married her high school sweetheart in 1989, and they have one daughter who attends college in West Virginia.

Babette says her favorite thing about librarianship is connecting patrons to just what they want and watching them experience something new at one of the library's many programs. One of her favorite spots at Main Library is the double-sided fireplace on the upper level with the art piece hanging above it called "Thoughts on Wings."

“There is so much to learn and experience at Main Library, and we also have five other locations, a 24-hour automated library, and the bookmobile for our community to enjoy. Stay tuned as we showcase each location in the coming months!”
