Digital Library News

If you download eBooks and audio books from the Ohio Digital Library, did you know you can suspend a hold you have on a title without losing your place in line? Suspending a hold lets you choose a window of time where you will continue to move forward on a title's waiting list without having the title become available to borrow. This can be helpful if you are going on vacation or are reading a really long book and won’t have time to read the titles you have on hold. If you make it to the first place in the waiting list while the  hold is suspended, the title will go to the next user in line until the suspension period is over. Learn how here.

Voter Registration

In order to vote in the November 3 election, you must be registered by October 5. Voter registration forms as well as change of address forms are available at the library. You can also change your address online. If you are unsure whether or not you are registered, you may look-up your registration here.

Tumblebook Users

If you use our subscription to TumbleBooks, you may have noticed that you now are required to enter your library barcode in order to access the site. This was a decision by the vendor to eliminate persons who use a library's paid subscription even if that person does not have a membership with that library. According to the vendor, you will need to re-enter your barcode every 90 days. Hopefully this will not be a huge inconvenience to our faithful users of the site.

Toy Sets

Something new for our young visitors to the library is a number of toy sets that allow children to use their creativity in various ways. The sets are in tubs and are available to a supervising adult who may ask for one of the tubs at the circulation desk. The sets are age appropriate, with ages listed on each tub. We ask that the person responsible for taking a tub to the children's play area be responsible for returning the tub to the desk, with all pieces included. The tubs of toys for ages 3-4+ are: Legos, Gears, Tubes, and TinkerToys. For children 1+, there are pegs, pegboard and first blocks to help with dexterity and hand-eye coordination. Parents of infants and toddlers will need to be aware of small pieces from toys that other children might be playing with, so we ask that adults supervise their children's play time.
