The Mike Stevens Memorial Collection



Mike and his family have avidly supported the Sandusky District Library for many years, and numerous family and friends made donations to the library in his name. We felt it was a fitting memorial to Mike if we developed two separate collections in the library. We purchased a number of Caldecott Medal books (the best illustrated children's book for each year) to revamp a portion of our collection that was in need of a "face-lift". We also purchased a number of sports books for children, both biographies of individual players and books on general sports as well.


The Mike Stevens Collection

Memorials to the Library in memory of Mike, have been used to start a book collection in his honor. Below is a partial list of the collection. If you would like to make a contribution towards the collection, please contact the Library Director.
