Visit here for more information on how to use our online resources. We also have hundreds of videos that you can watch on our YouTube channel, including author interviews and dozens of library talks that you can watch in their entirety.
Finally, we’ve specifically boosted our external Wi-Fi so it extends into the parking lot of our Main Branch and you can use it.
While we apologize for any inconvenience our closure may cause, the health of the community is paramount. We are following best-practice guidelines from health authorities and government officials to reduce the virus’s spread, especially to those in higher-risk groups.
The response to the coronavirus continues to evolve – not just in Ohio – but nationally and globally. Our status is SUBJECT TO CHANGE as circumstances evolve. We’ll keep you aware of any updates about our branches and services both on our website and social media.
