COSHOCTON – Joe Batchelor had a good time with his fellow senior football teammates from Coshocton High School at the library’s meet the team.

“It’s been nice seeing the community come out and meeting the little kids that watch us play on Friday nights,” he said.

The Coshocton Public Library held its meet the team event Aug. 12 and invited children to come have a snack, make a craft that included the football team’s schedule and get the players’ autographs.

“I wanted an opportunity to get kids into the library who normally are not here and help them feel like this is a good place to be,” said Deborah Crowdy, from the library. “I also wanted them to see that we have other things here than what they might think we do. The library is a place for people of all interests.”

Coshocton’s head football coach Jim Woodrum brought his 10 seniors with him to the event.

“I thought this was a great idea because it gets them into the community,” he said. “It’s important to give back. It also lets the community see that they are more than football players and the guys to see that kids do look up to them.”

Batchelor hoped that all the little kids who took the time to come out to the event and meet them also had a good time.

“I hope they learned that we appreciate them and that we hope they become cheerleaders or football players in the future,” he said.
