Spring Ahead


DON'T FORGET! Daylight Savings Time arrives Sunday, March 8.

Smartphones and Library Cards

Never forget your library card again (unless you forget your phone)! Simply scan and store your library card on your smartphone and present this barcode in the same way you would your library card. The app, CardStar, is one most often used in other libraries and we have tested this app with our scanners. It is available for both Apple and Android devices. This app allows you to name the card you scan so parents could scan all of their children's cards to their phone as well. As with any app, familiarize yourself with how the app works and what information it requires prior to downloading. There are other apps that work the same so if CardStar is not for you, you may try an alternate app and we will test it with our barcode scanners. If you have any questions, please ask at the circulation desk.

Painted Easter Eggs


Wednesday, March 25, 3:30-4:30

Grades 1-5

Come for some Easter fun. We will paint rock Easter eggs and decorate a basket to put them in. We'll also play some games involving eggs, and, of course, eat some eggs! Registration is required and class size is limited. Register online or call the library at 419-446-2783.

Tax Forms

As part of cost-cutting measures, the IRS has reduced their library tax forms distribution program so that we will no longer receive instruction booklets for federal forms. In addition, the only forms we will receive are 1040, 1040-A, and 1040-EZ. All other forms must be printed from the Internet or copied from our book of reproducible forms. The book will be available at the circulation desk. Library staff can help you with copying and printing forms, but cannot offer advice on which forms you need. Printing and copying costs for these forms will be $.05/page--$.10 for a two-sided page. We have now received all of the 1040 forms for both Federal and State, as well as the School District Tax Form for Ohio, and instruction books for State. 

The following websites offer forms and information for filing your taxes:

Donate to the Library

You will notice on each page of our website there is now a donation button which allows you to specify any amount that you wish to donate to the library. The transaction is handled through PayPal but you can donate even without a PayPal account. After clicking on the Donate button, there is a credit card option available for those not having a PayPal account. All donations to the library through this method will be deposited into the General Fund and used for general operating expenses of the library. If you wish to designate a donation for a particular use, please contact the Director of the library at 419-446-2783.
