About the library:
The Middletown Free Library, located in Lima, is a busy place these days — on average, over 300 people per day walk through our doors.
Since its inception in 1956, the Library has expanded from a small book bus to a full-sized library, carrying books, CDs, DVDs, video games, audiobooks and a large selection of current magazines. In 2014 the library added a makerspace, CreateSpace@MFL, offering our community access to cutting edge technology and programming such as 3D Printers. The library also acts as a great community center, offering many programs for patrons of all ages.
The library provides the highest level of service to all library users through appropriate and usefully organized resources; equitable access; and accurate, unbiased, and courteous responses to all requests.
The mission of the Library is to help the people of our community achieve their full potential through the transformative power of information, imagination & ideas.
