Bexley Responds COVID-19
Since March 11, 2020, when the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus disease, COVID-19, a pandemic, our community has been responding. From closing schools, libraries, and businesses to changing the ways we gather, learn, and worship, our lives have been turned upside down. This collection of photos, documenting history as it happens, represents a range of experiences, including hometown hero Dr. Amy Acton and the Black Lives Matter movement, all in the midst of a pandemic. Browse the collection and consider adding your photos to the archive.
Bexley High School Yearbooks
The first of Bexley Public Library's digital collections this collection of Bexley High School yearbooks, 1923-2005, was created in partnership with the Bexley City School District, the Bexley High School Alumni Association, and Columbus Metropolitan Library with funding from a 2103 Bexley Community Foundation grant. Additional yearbooks will be added ten years after the date of publication.
Sears Kit Homes
Explore the houses of Bexley, Ohio that were purchased as kits from a Sears, Roebuck & Company catalog. See photographs of nine such homes discovered by researchers from the Bexley Historical Society and Bexley Public Library and learn about their features.
