Have you had the opportunity to browse in the Local History room at the Way Public Library? If so, you have likely met our local history volunteer extraordinaire, Lloyd Swanson. Lloyd, a Perrysburg native, spends 10-15 hours a week volunteering at the library, and can usually be found busy at work in the local history room.

Lloyd retired from the Perrysburg Street Department as a Superintendent after more than 30 years. With his extensive knowledge of the Perrysburg area and the people who reside here, it seemed like a natural transition for Lloyd to volunteer in the area of local history. He works on many tasks, including updating burial records and uploading historical pictures that are donated by Perrysburg residents. Lloyd also works on shelving books in local history and keeps the room tidy. Now that is a large task!

When Lloyd has a little free time, he enjoys travelling across country with his wife, Pam. Lloyd and Pam also have four energetic grandchildren who they enjoy spending time with. He is a Detroit Tigers fan, and even finds time to deliver meals-on-wheels for the Wood County Department on Aging. The staff of the Way Library would like to thank you, Lloyd, for all of your significant contributions that you have made to the Way Library. You certainly help to keep the local history department at the Way Library a community showcase!
