Hello all-

Just a reminder, the library will close at 5pm on Thursday, December 23 and remain closed for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day so staff can spend holiday time with their families. We will re-open Monday, December 27 at 10am. The library will also be closed on Saturday, January 1, 2022 in honor of New Year’s Day. 

The library will be open during Christmas in Ashley on Saturday, December 4 from 5pm to 7pm. We will have treat bags and a backdrop for your holiday photos. 

Over the last couple of months, I have read questions about the library on the Village of Ashley- Community Awareness Facebook page. If you have a question about programs, services, collection, our space, anything that relates to the library, please contact us by email, message us on OUR Facebook page ( or call the library (740.747.2085).

Contacting the library directly will eliminate any misinformation from spreading. One of our roles is to connect patrons with resources which includes information concerning the library. 

The library will continue to have at-home CoVid tests available free from the Ohio Department of Health. If needed, please remain in your car in our parking lot rather than come into the building. Please call and tell us where you are parked and the number of tests needed. We ask that you only take one test per person needed.  

If you have any questions or concerns, I am available for a chat.
