To prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community, and in compliance with ordinances in the City of Worthington and the City of Columbus, masks are required when visiting the Library.

While our buildings are open, for your comfort and convenience, we continue to offer several no-contact and low-contact services, including curbside pickup, drive-up window and after-hours pickup lockers.

We've taken a number of steps to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and ensure our libraries are safe and healthy environments for you and our staff:

  • If you are sick, we ask you to please stay home.
  • Visitors to the Library are required to wear face masks.
  • Hand sanitizer is available at the library entrance and throughout the Library.
  • We offer a mobile app you can use to check out materials from your own device.
  • Styluses are available for use at the self-checkout stations and will be disinfected after use.
  • Surfaces and touchpoints are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized daily.
  • Photohydroionization air sterilization systems have been installed at all three library locations.
  • Bathrooms have been updated with air purifiers as well as touchless faucets, hand dryers and toilet flushers.
  • Library staff members wear face masks and regularly wash hands.
  • Clear panels are in place at service desks where library visitors and staff members interact.

We continue to offer a wide array of online services, such access to audiobooks, digital books, movies and music including many always available titles. You can get a library card without visiting in person—all you need is an email address. Wi-Fi access at all three of our locations is accessible from outside the buildings.

If you have a question or comment, we're here for you! Get help by email, phone, chat and text.

We thank you for your ongoing patience and support of the Library!

I am the library's director of support services and have had a book in hand (or in my bag) since before I could read. I'm a fan of audiobooks, follow too many fiction series to keep up and love to explore new authors and pop culture memoirs. I spend my free time cooking, gardening, exercising and watching movies with my husband and our English mastiffs.
