Melanie Dawes, one of the contributors to the display, said, "For Cincinnati Reds fans who knew the Big Red Machine players, you must come take a look (at the exhibit)."
The display includes posters, bobbleheads, Wheaties boxes and programs.
Dawes described two posters of interest: one featuring "The Faces of Riverfront" from 1970 to 2002, and the other highlighting the "Nasty Boys" (Randy Myers, Norm Charlton and Rob Dibble).
Dawes added that also contributing to the collection were Dan Raike and his grandson, Cade.
"The library really appreciates exhibitors from the public (who) showcase some of the unique things we find in our lives, like the Cincinnati Reds,” Highland County District Library Assistant Supervisor Donna O'Dom said.
