To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 the State Library is closed until at least May 1st. Click here for Coronavirus Information and Resources. Online resources and remote services will remain available during this time. 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.
