In adherence to best practices and guidance from the Governor’s office brought about in response to COVID-19, the State Library moved to a “remote work” status effective March 18, 2020. State Library staff remain available remotely during normal business hours. Thank you for your patience. Online resources remain available 24/7. Loan periods have been extended for physical items currently checked-out and we ask that patrons refrain from returning these items to the library. The option for requesting items for new check-outs has been deactivated. State employees are encouraged to access online library resources through this website or at MyOhio.gov.
