FRIDAY 3/20: AS EFFORTS BECOME MORE FOCUSED TO STOP THE SPREAD OF COVID-19, WE HAVE DECIDED TO LOCK OUR DROPBOX. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING. WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS TRYING TIME TOGETHER. STAY WELL.
The following is a statement from Pioneer Library System:
Starting Saturday, March 14, 2020, the Pioneer Library System (PLS) will suspend the option of placing holds in OWWL. This means neither library staff nor patrons will be able to order library materials from another member library. Additionally, PLS will suspend delivery services which will result in no movement of library materials between member libraries until further notice. PLS will reevaluate this stoppage of service on Friday, April 3, 2020, with guidance from local and state government agencies.
This plan of action was made with the health and safety of our system staff, member libraries staff, and library communities as a top priority. We thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we respond to rapidly growing COVID-19 concerns.

What does this mean?
Beginning Saturday 3/14, our library system, for the health and safety of our library community, has suspended the ability to place holds. A decision will be made on 4/3 about whether to continue the stoppage on holds.
During this time, at the Lima Public Library, we have increased our dedication to thorough hand washing practices, cleaning surfaces and materials in the library, and encourage staff and patrons to stay home if they’re feeling unwell.
We are dedicated to responding appropriately and serving you, our community, in the best way possible. More information to follow.
Stay well, library peeps.
The library will be closed on Monday 11/11 for Veterans Day. Regular hours will resume on 11/12.
The Friends of the Lima Public Library will meet on Tuesday 11/12 at 7:00 PM.

The library will be closed on Thursday 11/28, Friday 11/29, Saturday 11/30, and Sunday 12/1 for Thanksgiving. Have a safe and happy holiday!
We will be closed on Monday 11/11 for Veterans Day. Regular hours will resume on Tuesday 11/12. Thank you for your service!
We have a very exciting announcement, library peeps! Construction on our roof starts next Monday (9/30). The roof has needed to be replaced for a while. With this new roof, we are hoping to improve our energy costs and also to make the library safer.
As you know, we battle every winter with the ice on the walkway and our hope is to eliminate this issue as much as possible. Thank you for your patience as we navigate the construction.
The current plan is to stay open but should anything change, you will be the first to know. The entire project should take a week or two.
Thank you for being part of our community and watching this process unfold with us!
