Mobile App Transition

Our new full-featured mobile app will be available late-winter and will include new features like reading recommendations, event information and registration, and meeting room booking, in addition to the features you have come to love such as a virtual library card, My Account management and easy catalog searching.

In the meantime, we encourage patrons to use our temporary mobile app. We have setup instructions for both Android and iPhone users.

SearchOhio and OhioLINK Requests

SearchOhio borrowing has been restored!

  • SearchOhio requests may be placed via links in the new Aspen Discovery catalog.
