Find your church in a newly published book by the library; second book in the works

Find your church in a newly published book by the Public Library of Steubenville and Jefferson County.

“200 Years of Religion in Steubenville, Ohio” is a book containing photographs and history about churches that have been part of Steubenville dating back to 1800.

The book was compiled by Library Assistant Deb Stanley of the Local History Department at the Schiappa branch.

“Many local people supported this project by supplying photos and history,” she said. “They will be pleased with the results.”

The book cannot be checked out to library customers to take home, but all are welcome to visit the Schiappa branch to view it, she noted.

Stanley is now working on a second book that will feature churches in Jefferson County.

Churches interested in submitting information and photographs, can contact her at the reference dpartment at the Schiappa branch or call (740) 264-6166.
