Library Open for Curbside Pickup
The library is open with curbside service only under Gov. Mike DeWine's Responsible RestartOhio plan. Patrons are able to pick up reserved items in their cars in the library's back parking lot from noon to 6 p.m. weekdays, 1-4 Saturday.

We are going to proceed with caution to try to be as safe as possible for our employees, patrons and community because the novel coronavirus remains a serious concern.

No patrons will be allowed inside the library during this initial phase of the re-opening process.

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 have been checked out on their account and are ready to pick up. Signs in the parking lot will provide instructions on how to proceed to let us know you are here to pick up your items. Your bag of items will be brought to your car.

Items must be returned in the library bookdrops in the front of the building. Following recommendations of the Institute of Museum and Library Services, all returned items will be quarantined for 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 curbside service only through June 6.

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.

Please stay safe.

Sincerely,
Chris Owens
