The Victoria Read Public Library is a publicly funded and managed library serving a little more than 800 residents in the city of Flushing, in Belmont County, Ohio. Founded in the 1930s, it was called Martins Ferry Public Library and functioned as a school district public library. In 1937, Flushing Branch Library was opened; however, in March 1985, it was transformed into a 4,500-square-foot building funded by private donors and then named Victoria Read Public Library. As an affiliate library of the Crestline Public Library, it opened the New Washington Branch in order to contribute to the library's overall collection and services, which include more than 100,000 total circulations, more than 70,000 book and serial volumes, more than 190,000 eBooks, more than 4,000 audio files, and more than 5,000 video files. Today, the county library has more than 100,000 visits and more than 14,000 registered borrowers.
