Beginning immediately, we are canceling all classes and events, meeting room bookings, outreach activities, and homework help services. We will be contacting those impacted by cancelations through phone or email. These temporary service changes will remain in effect at least until March 31.

The library strives to balance public service with public safety. We are actively monitoring communications from Ohio Department of Health (OOH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

We are temporarily removing all toys and literacy manipulatives from the public service floor.

All Pickerington Public Library locations will remain open to the public at this time. We will continue to communicate any further library updates in regards to the virus on the library’s website and social media channels. In the meantime, the library’s free e-branch has many digital services available, such as e-books and audiobooks, streaming television and movies, and digital access to magazines and news publications.
