Are the library locations open?
No, all 4 Library locations are closed to the public until further notice.
Leadership will assess the closure status on a weekly basis.
You’re an organization that users taxpayer dollars to serve the public. How can you close?
We know from health officials that COVID-19 (coronavirus) is easily spread in confined, indoor spaces. Information shared by Ohio governor’s office indicates that aggressive early social distancing can stop the coronavirus from exponentially spreading. Libraries are places where people gather, sometimes in large groups. Because of this, we feel closing to the public will help keep community members safe.
When will events at the Library resume?
All in-person Library programming events are currently canceled until further notice. We will reassess the situation as time goes on, so please stay tuned for more details by checking our website and following us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram .
Can I still check out physical materials?
No, you may not check out physical materials until the Library has reopened.
Will I be fined for overdue materials?
No. We are extending due dates until further notice. If you currently have physical materials checked out, we ask that you do not return them for the time being. Please note that book drops are currently closed.
What happens to my holds while the Library is closed?
There’s no need to worry. Nothing is circulating, no one will lose their spot, and we’ll give plenty of notice when we reopen.
Are book, CD, and other material donations being accepted?
No. Please hold any donations you may have until further notice.
Can I sign up for a Library card digitally?
Yes. You can use our online form here. Once completed, you’ll receive a library card number in your email. You’ll still need to come into a physical library location to pick up your permanent card, after we reopen, but you can access our digital services immediately after you receive your confirmation email.
What resources can I access online if I don’t want to come to the Library?
Not at this time. All 41 Library locations are currently closed to the public until further notice. You may complete the U.S. Census digitally by visiting 2020census.gov.
