One of the most popular fundraisers for the Oxford Library is the annual fishing tournament. This year, the Largemouth Bass Tournament will be held at the Glenroy Preserve on June 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There are three cash prizes this year for first, second and third place.
The event is made possible this year by Landhope Farms, the main sponsor. Other sponsors are include Glenroy Preserve, the Oxford Area Foundation, Lola’s, Ware Presbyterian Village, Belly Busters, Edward Jones, Oxford Mobile, Kennett Adult Literacy Program, Jim Neary’s Bait and Tackle, the Octoraro Hotel and Tavern, Sawmill Grill and the Oxford Lions Club.
The fishing tournament, which is open to everyone, promises to be a memorable day at the scenic Glenroy Preserve. The registration fee also includes a ticket for lunch (hot dog, fries and drink) provided by the Oxford Lions Club.
Anglers have their choice of fishing in three different ponds on the 577-acre property. It is a catch and release tournament.
Glenroy Preserve recently had the grand opening and is now open daily from dawn to dusk. A gate has been installed at the entrance to remind the public not to enter the property if the gate is closed. The parking lot is located at 10 West Christine Road in Nottingham.
There are miles of trails accessible to the public for hiking and mountain biking. The Preserve will promote, educate and encourage environmental awareness in Southern Chester County and increase natural sustainability.

The Oxford Library is located at 48 S 2nd St. in Oxford. It serves the population of the Borough of Oxford, and the townships of Elk, East Nottingham, West Nottingham, Lower Oxford and Upper Oxford. The library depends on donations to keep the doors open, and an investment in the Oxford Library is an investment in education for all.
