“We regret having to do this but I feel that it is in the best interest of the community that we do our part to minimize the spread of the Coronavirus. I would rather err on the side of caution than to potentially foster the continued spread of the virus.” – Bill Martino, Director

As always, you can access digital library resources with your library card.  Ebooks and eAudiobooks are available through Overdrive and the Libby app, stream music and more with Hoopla and stream movies and TV shows with Kanopy and Recorded Books Digital.  Visit our website at www.ccplohio.org for access to digital resources.

We are continuing to monitor the U. S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) and the Clark County Combined Health District for updates.  At present, we are taking additional steps beyond regular practices and cleaning and sanitizing countertops and workspaces.  We are also making hand gel sanitizers available for library users.

Everyone has a role to play in reducing the spread of COVID-19 and staying healthy.  Please stay home and do not visit the library if you are exhibiting signs of the flu or if you are not feeling well.  We invite you to explore everything we have to offer on our website.  You can download eBooks and audiobooks on Overdrive, stream movies and checkout eBooks, audiobooks, and music on Hoopla and Kanopy.
