Last year was the third busiest year in the library’s history in terms of checkouts, and we loaned even more audiobooks, e-books, and regular books for adults than we did in 2010, our busiest year ever.

Last year we recycled more than 71,000 pounds of paper, earning $900 for the library. You can use our recycling bin for just about any kind of paper - magazines, paper bags, catalogs, phone books, paperback and hardbound books, newspapers, junk mail, and office and school paper. The bin is in the parking lot near Broad Boulevard.
From April through December last year we saved almost $22,900 by using 300,000 fewer kilowatt hours of electricity. That's 36% less power than we used during the same months in 2009.
Now you can download audiobooks on any Internet computer in the library. All you need is a library card and a supported portable device (except for an iPhone). Just go to the Ohio Digital Library, check out an audiobook or music, and when you click "download" on the next screen the Overdrive Download Station software will lead you through the rest.
Get an entire audiobook on a device that's about the size of a deck of cards. Add your own earbuds and a battery (or buy some here). Listen and enjoy; it's that easy. See our Playaways page under "books & more" for more information.
