Get up and go with the Library!

Posted: Monday, July 21, 2014, 9:03 am

No matter where your summer vacation takes you— across state lines or across town— you're never too far from Worthington Libraries. Special services, developed with you in mind, mean we're always there when you need us.

Mobile services

Need library info while you're out and about? We offer a mobile website and a free mobile app. You can access library hours and locations, browse for library events, use the library catalog to search for and reserve materials and even access your library account to renew materials and pay fines, all in a format optimized for your mobile device!

Text message (SMS) reference

Got a question for library staff while you're on the move? Text us! Library staff can answer simple, quick questions (up to 160 characters), during library hours. You'll receive answers right on your cell phone.

Drive-up services

Return materials— and more!— without leaving your vehicle. Northwest Library offers a drive-up window where you can pick up reserves, return materials and pay fines. The drive-up window is available during regular library hours.

All three libraries also offer after-hours returns— a drive-up bookdrop at Old Worthington Library, a drive-up return slot at Northwest Library and a walk-up return slot at Worthington Park Library.

After-hours pickup

After-hours access is not limited to returns— use our after-hours pickup service to hold reserved materials in a locker outside Old Worthington Library or Northwest Library. When you reserve materials in the library catalog, just select a locker as your pickup location. (Look for "WL Northwest After Hours Pickup Locker" or "WL Old Worthington After Hours Pickup Locker.")
