Hello all,


The library has new books arriving every month. Stop by to check out  the options.


If you are uncomfortable entering the library, we are happy to pull your  requests and meet at your car for curbside service.


We are hosting a Pumpkin Decorating Contest. See inside for all the details.


If you are interested in learning about online banking, we are partnering  with First Commonwealth Bank to offer a class. Please call the library to  be added to the list. Once we have a few names, we will arrange the date and time with our local bank.


We are temporarily not accepting large amounts of book donations. We  need the additional shelf space in the basement to quarantine returned  items. Better World Books (

has bins throughout the Columbus area and will accept book donations.


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

Thank you, Amee






Virtual Storytime


Join Miss Megan on Facebook for a virtual storytime. Every Thursday morning at 10:00 am a new storytime will be posted. That week’s storytime will be available for viewing for one week.
