Based on the guidance of the Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Library Council, we are taking a slow, phased approach to reinstating library services.
Yes! Items may be returned to the exterior or interior book return receptacles at either Centerville Library or Woodbourne Library.* Once materials are returned, they will be quarantined for several days before staff check them in. It may take 5-7 days for items to clear from your account.
*NOTE: Please return ‘Brary Bags, Maker Kits and Launchpads inside the Library ONLY to avoid possibly incurring damaged item fees.
Once materials are returned, they are quarantined for several days before staff check them in. It may take 5-7 days for items to clear from your account. Please disregard fines that appear on your account for items you’ve returned. Overdue fines accrued during quarantine will be cleared from your account when the materials are checked in.
We are following state mandated safety requirements and best practices including:
Fortunately, the Library has a wealth of online books, audios, movies, music and magazines that you can access without leaving home. In addition, ‘virtual’ events like storytimes, book discussions, maker classes and more offer opportunities to connect with the Library and staff. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram or visit wclibrary.info/events for event listings.
Apply for a library card online to instantly access many of these services.
We have many educational resources for children and teens to help with remote learning. For adults who are home from work, this may be an ideal time to grow your job skills using our online learning resources. Note: If you need internet access, the Library's Wi-Fi extends into the Library's parking lots.
Friends of WCPL are accepting gently used donations of books and audiovisual materials at Centerville Library ONLY.
