Spring Valley Community Library



PO BOX 218 


TELEPHONE & FAX # 937-862-4538 

This is the friendly small town library like the one you may have known as a child, operating for all in our community and thanks to the support of our community. If you’ve not visited us before, we are located at the corner of Walnut and Vine Streets, just one block off Main Street, in beautiful Spring Valley. We are open 4 days each week with additional hours added as needed for programs such as our Summer Reading Club. This program generally attracts about 14 children ranging from 4 to 10 years of age to each weekly session, where we provide lunch, read stories, and do a simple craft. 

We have not been part of the Greene County Library system since 1988, so must rely on various fund-raising activities and donations to continue to operate. But we still offer all the bestsellers for our adult readers and continually update our children’s literature. We are always happy to take special requests. (Just call or stop by, or email to suesbooks@woh.rr.com) New lending materials are listed in each issue of the Village Pump. In addition to books for children, young adults, and adults, we also have videos, magazines, and Internet access. We are not just a library, we’re a community service center. We’re the place to come if you need to send a Fax or make photocopies — or just to find out about happenings in the community. We even have a small food pantry available any time the library is open, no questions asked. 

Sue is the only paid employee, working approximately 15 hours each week. Several dedicated volunteers cover other library hours and help with fund raising activities. 

HOURS: Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday 3:00 – 6:00pm 

Saturday 11:00am – 1:00pm 

Or by appointment! 

We hope you will want to visit us often.
