Come to the Main Library on Saturday, May 7 at 10 a.m. to work with our staff to install encryption programs on your devicefor greater privacy! If you bring in a functional laptop or smartphone and, optionally, a new USB flash drive, we can help you set up some important privacy tools like Tor, Signal, and Tails, so your web browsing and communications will be protected from eavesdroppers. If these sound too intimidating, we can also help you set up a basic Firefox Browser with HTTPS Everywhere and some tools to prevent tracking by advertisers. If all of this is gibberish to you, you’re especially invited — we can help people at any level to protect their privacy online.
We provide best selling audio and print books you can checkout and download to a wide range of devices.
Kids and Teens can find best selling audio and print books in two new collections: the TEENScollection and the KIDScollection. Try them, and don't forget that you can always go to the main collection for more.

The Ohio Library Council (OLC) has issued a statewide return on investment (ROI) report of Ohio’s public libraries. The report confirms that libraries provide a strong economic benefit to their communities. The report shows that Ohio’s public libraries save Ohioans money and also directly benefit the state economy. Public library services in Ohio are worth nearly $2.7 billion. For every dollar spent by Ohio public libraries in 2014, Ohioans received $5.48 in total economic value. Additionally, Ohio has the highest library use per capita in the nation. Compared to other states, Ohio libraries are also more cost efficient with one of the lowest cost per transaction rates in the country. Ohio’s figure of $2.88 is well below the national average.
