UPDATE: All Franklin County Library System branches are closed, including book drops until further notice. Keep all your items borrowed until we reopen. The due dates will be extended and no fines will accrue during this time.


What if my items are due next week?

Please keep all of your library materials at home until we reopen. All of our due dates have been extended until June 4. If we have to extend our date of reopening, we will extend this due date as well. In an effort to keep our bookdrops from overflowing, please don’t return your items to any branch until we reopen.

What if I need WiFi? 

You can still access our WiFi from outside of our buildings. Please stay in your car or maintain a safe distance from others to use the WiFi. .

What about items I had on hold? 

All of your holds will continue. You can get them when we reopen.

I’m bored and I have read all of my books: now what? 

We offer lots of online databases and information through our website: Please check out the “E-Library” and “Our Picks” links on our website to see what there is to offer. If you need help accessing anything, please call your local branch, email, or message us through Facebook (this will get you the fastest response). 

Check out our available downloadable ebooks and audiobooks through our website with Overdrive or through the Libby App on your enabled device. You can also learn a  new language with Mango Languages or discover one of the many resources for children and teens available through our website.

We have extended the amount of time you can have an ebook or audiobook as well as the number of items you can check out and have on hold. We hope that this helps you pass the time more easily..
