As the community maneuvers through the new stay-at-home reality, the library is offering exciting opportunities to assist the public and enable members to utilize traditional services in new and convenient ways.
Our programming team is moving book clubs, early literary classes, ASL classes and other activities to online services. Using these tools, customers will be able to connect and interact with librarians and library resources at their convenience.
Like other libraries in the area, Pickerington Public Library is also allowing new customers to apply for library cards remotely. In doing so, new and existing cardholders can take advantage of online services such as downloadable e-books, audiobooks, magazines, streaming movies and music.
Using tools including Zoom, YouTube and more, these new offerings are a result of Pickerington Public Library’s everlasting commitment to staying connected and providing services to the public in times of need by providing access to your favorite services with reliable resources.
We know and understand how important it is to be flexible to accommodate your needs and varied schedules. Below are ways to connect with us as your time allows.
