Every summer for more than twenty years, the Mount Gilead Public Library has offered a summer reading program to keep kids and their family’s active and reading all summer long. While this year certainly had its challenges, the library is happy to call its 2020 Summer Reading Program a success.
Per Gov. Mike DeWine's announcement, the Mount Gilead Public Library will require all able individuals to wear a mask. Children under 10 may be in the library without a mask, though wearing one is highly recommended. We will continue to limit the number of people in the library at one time as well as continuing with our already in place social distancing measures. Curbside pick-up remains an option for all current card holders.
The Mount Gilead Public Library is looking for a friendly, energetic and customer focused individual to join our team in serving as part-time Library Aide for an average of 21 hours/week.
The board of the Mount Gilead Public Library is pleased to announce that Melissa Kipp has been named as its new Library Director.

The Mount Gilead Public Library drive-up window (only) is now a distribution site for at-home COVID-19 test kits. “You drive up, ask for a kit and give some basic information and drive away,” said library director Melissa Kipp. "The process is easy and quick - and free.” No test kits will be handed out inside of the building.
