In other action, Trinity Lescallett, from the Tiffin-Seneca Public Library, is scheduled to speak with the commissioners about this year’s Community Read program, which will be a little different due to COVID-19. Instead of large events being hosted like in previous years, this year’s program will focus on revisiting past Community Read programs.
