Library now open Print
Active ImagePatrons are allowed in the building with limitations as the library enters Phase 2 of its re-opening plan.

We will continue with limited hours from noon to 6 p.m. weekdays, 1-4 Saturday. We also will continue to offer curbside pickup during these hours.

The library strives to continue to provide excellent customer service while also maintaining a safe environment for the staff, patrons and community because the novel coronavirus remains a serious concern.

All staff members are required to wear masks to help protect our patrons. We strongly encourage patrons to wear masks to help protect our staff. Disposable masks will be available near the front entrance, along with hand sanitizer.

To help ensure that we can follow social distancing rules within the library, we will be limiting the total number of patrons allowed in at any one time to 12. Visit times will be limited to a maximum of 1 hour.

A limited number of computers will be available for public use for up to 1 hour. Keyboards and mice will be cleaned after each use.

Seating throughout the library will be extremely limited. The study room will be available for reservation for individual use or by two family members for up to 1 hour.

We encourage you to continue to take advantage of our curbside pickup service. Patrons may reserve items at any time through the library's online catalog, the COOL Libraries app, or sending a list of items by e-mail ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ). Patrons also may call the library at 937.783.3585 during library hours to reserve items. Patrons will be notified when their items are ready to pick up. Just call the library to let us know you are here to pick up your items, and your bag of items will be brought to your car.

Items must be returned in the library bookdrops in the front of the building or the slot at the Circulation Desk. Following recommendations of the Institute of Museum and Library Services, all returned items will be isolated for at least three days before they are checked in and returned to the collection. The items will remain on your account during this time.

We currently plan to continue with Phase 2 through at least July 11.

Please remember everyone has a role to play in reducing the spread of COVID-19 and staying healthy. Please stay home if you are exhibiting signs of the flu or if you are not feeling well. We invite you to explore everything we have to offer on our website. You have access to movies through Kanopy and can download eBooks and audiobooks through the Ohio Digital Library.
