State Representative Dale Mallory with his favorite book Ohio Valley History.
State Representative Tim Derickson with his favorite book The Book of Virtues by William Bennett. “The Book of Virtues by Dr. William Bennett encourages us all to honor and respect one another while challenging each of us to rooted and grown in our faith. This timeless writing is one that will be used as a reference to basic, wholesome living in an increasingly secular world. The State Library of Ohio has the resources to help all Ohioans, whether it’s research for a school project, preparing for a career change, or studying for the ACT or SAT. Based on my personal experience and use of the State Library of Ohio, I strongly encourage Ohio students to utilize this invaluable asset for their own personal growth.”
