Mount Gilead Public Library began a new chapter in its 100 + year history as we joined COOL. COOL stands for Consortium of Ohio Libraries and is currently made up of eleven libraries from around the state. Most are small libraries seeking an inexpensive way to provide more materials to our patrons. By searching in Mount Gilead's catalog, a user can find materials from these other libraries as well as our collection, request it and it will be sent to the library for the patron to pick up. Also with a Mount Gilead library card, our patrons can visit and borrow materials from other consortium libraries: Cardington-Lincoln Public Library, Selover Public Library at Chesterville, Community Library at Sunbury and Wornstaff Public Library in Ashley. If you want to take a road trip, Arcanum Public Library, Blanchester Public Library, Germantown Public Library, J.R. Clarke Public Library in Covington, Marvin Memorial Library in Shelby and Worch Memorial Public Library in Versailles will accept your M.G. library card.
The funds to complete this project are paid in part through a grant awarded by the State Library of Ohio for $108,193 from the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) to fund the initial installation, configuration, and migration to the new system.
Each year more Morrow County residents commute to work. Instead of listening to the radio or music CD's, another option is books on CD. The Mount Gilead Public Library has titles by many of today's popular authors. The number of disks range from five to twenty providing hours of listening pleasure as you drive to and from work or are planning on taking a vacation. All CD books circulate for two weeks and can be renewed for another two weeks if needed. Check the catalog for available titles.
