Posted By:  Cari Hillman
Monday, March 16, 2020

Per Governor DeWine’s extended stay-at-home order, and in conjunction with other state-wide public entities, MidPointe Library System will remain closed until it is safe to reopen. We appreciate your support and hope to see you in the near future.  

IMPORTANT INFORMATION 

Checked Out Materials & Holds
We are asking patrons to keep any physical items they currently have checked out until it is possible to accept returns. All drop boxes are closed. Please know, no fines will accrue on these items. If you currently have any items on hold, you will retain your place on the hold list and the items will still be available to you when the Library reopens. 

eResources
There are many ways you can enjoy Library materials without leaving your home!

MidPointe’s eLibrary is full of free downloadable eBooks, eAudiobooks, digital magazines, music and movies. Ohio Digital Library, cloudLibrary and hoopla all offer different content, explore to find what you and your family enjoy! As a bonus, MidPointe is extending the hoopla borrowing limit from 10 to 15 items a month! Find MidPointe’s eLibrary here.

The Library offers dozens of educational and entertaining databases. Craft using step-by-step instructions with “CreativeBug.” Learn a new language with “Mango.” The popular genealogical research resource, “Ancestry,” typically only for in-library use, is available at home through April 30. Find databases here.

Programming
MidPointe is bringing programming to your door! Check out the Library’s Facebook page and YouTube channel for virtual storytimes, arts and craft tutorials, live science experiments, fitness programming and more!  

Meeting room reservations and on-site programming is canceled until further notice. This includes the Community Shred Days scheduled for April 25 and May 2. The Community Blood Center will still hold a collection day with their mobile coach on April 22 from 1:30 to 7:30 PM in the MidPointe Library West Chester parking lot. Visit www.donortime.com or call 1-800-388-4483 for an appointment (use Sponsor ID #1479). Additionally, Premier Health will hold a Community Donations Pick-Up with one of their mobile units on April 10 from 12:00 to 2:00 PM in the MidPointe Library West Chester parking lot. Donations of supplies to support those on the front lines of this health care emergency are welcome. Please find details here.

Ohio’s Primary Election
The MidPointe Library System renewal levy was originally scheduled to be on the Ohio primary election ballot on March 17. Upon the cancellation of in-person voting due to COVID-19, the only way to vote in this election is by absentee ballot. Further information and an absentee ballot request form can be found here.
