Sarah's Corner

Sarah's Corner!

Ten years ago, in October of 2006, the class of 1956 graciously created a children’s library space called “Sarah’s Corner” in honor of classmate, Sarah Rose Gorsuch, who was a devoted Westerville teacher.  The space they created has been used by the Otterbein Education Department both during the academic year as well as during the summer when the school hosts numerous reading clinics for area children.

Children in the community are also welcome to visit this child centered section of the library!

Borrowing Privileges

The Courtright Memorial Library extends borrowing privileges to the following external community groups and their card holders:

  • Westerville Public Library
  • OhioLINK affiliates

If you would like borrowing privileges but do not fit one of these groups, please see the Friends of the Library tab on the left side of this page to learn more.  Those who graduated from Otterbein within the past year are eligible for a special discount to join the Friends of the Library (applicable for first year of membership only).

Courtright Memorial Library - Code of Conduct

Our Code of Conduct applies to all library patrons, from students & staff, to our community and Friends.  It ensures our facility is a welcoming place appropriate for all.

Our guest patrons are welcome to utilize our first floor computer lab, and printing services also located on the first floor.  To gain access, external community members must complete a Guest Access Request Form (GARF) annually, and present valid federal or state photo identification with each visit.
