Missing your library? We’re missing you! We want to stay connected. That’s why we're continuing to expand digital services and programming while working towards a safe and responsible reopening. We invite you to enjoy:
Virtual Summer Reading Challenge

Summer Reading Challenge (formerly called Summer Reading Club) has gone virtual, featuring your favorite performers and library programs online. Read, watch our online programs, and complete online activities to earn raffle entries and prizes. Find more SRC details here.
Virtual Storytimes (Tue & Thu)

Library Live Chats (Wed)
Wednesdays 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Chat via Facebook with SPL Adult Services staff about books, movies, podcasts, and more! Topics include current reads, book to movie adaptations, favorite podcasts, fantasy and sci-fi, cookbooks, and more. We'll post the topic on Facebook at indicated times and then live chat via comments. Drop in anytime during the hour.
24/7 Wi-Fi Access from Library Parking Lots
Access hours have been expanded. Wi-Fi is now available 24/7 from library parking lots. We cannot guarantee signal strength and apologize for any inconvenience.
Don't have a library card? Sign up online!
During our unexpected closure, you can still sign up online for a library card to access digital content. Click here to begin. On your “successful registration screen”, you will receive a temporary barcode (PACREG#######). You can use this temporary barcode and the pin you assigned to your account to begin immediately using digital library services. Once the library reopens, you have 30 days to come into one of our locations with a valid photo ID and proof of address to receive your full access card. All applicants must be residents of Ohio.
We hope you continue to enjoy our digital library available here. You'll find access to e-books, e-audiobooks, music, movies, research tools, self-learning courses, curated links to other free resources, and more. We update the article frequently so check back often!
*Update: As of May 26, SPL is now offering limited no-contact holds pickup and returns. Read more about how to request items for pickup or return materials here.
