Library Buildings Remain Closed, Some Services Still Available

POMEROY, Ohio – In response to the extended Stay-at-Home order from Governor DeWine, the Meigs County District Public Library remains closed until at least May 1. The library will remain closed until the governor resends the order.

In a statement from the meigs County District Public Library, “We continue to ask that you keep library material at home during the closing. Additionally, there are no due dates at this time, and no one will be penalized. There are no fines for overdue material at ANYTIME and certainly not during this time.”

The library does have services available online. Visit the library’s website for access to educational and entertainment resources at www.meigslibrary.org. Visit the library’s History Site at www.history.meigslibrary.org to discover local documents, photographs, newspapers, yearbooks, and more. Follow the library on social media for announcements on reopening, and for virtual Storytimes, crafts, and more led by library staff. The library may be found on Facebook and Instagram by searching “Meigs Library” in the search bar of the apps or the sites. 

While practicing “social distancing”, it would be an excellent time to get connected with Libby and Hoopla. These apps allow users to read e-books, listen to audiobooks, and more. Hoopla even has TV, movies, and music. Start by downloading the apps in the app store and log in with your library card number and PIN. If you already have a library account and don’t know your card number, email [email protected] If you have never had a library account before, sign up for a card on the library’s website at www.meigslibrary.org

According to the statement, “Library staff miss our patrons, but we know that this is the time to be safe and keep our distance from each other. In the meantime, keep reading and stay healthy! We are all in this together.”
