The Findlay-Hancock County Public Library was founded in 1888 and was originally located in the Hancock County Courthouse. The library opened to the public on January 27, 1890 . The library’s primary source of funding comes from the Public Library Fund, a portion of Ohio’s tax revenue distributed to each county to divide among its local public libraries. In addition, a local operating levy was passed by Hancock County residents in 2010.
