Digital versions of the Rossford Record Journal published from 1939 - 2015 are now online.

John Kachmarik’s donation has enabled the library to have all issues of the Rossford Record Journal from 1939-2015 scanned and made available online.

The library graciously accepts Mr. Kachmarik’s gift and is grateful that he elected to remember the library in his will.
