See Garrettsville Library’s “Tales From Around The World” Collage


Come to the Garrettsville Library to see the “Tales From Around The World” collage in the Children’s Room. Local artist, Ken Zander, has graciously donated his time and talents, and he has nearly completed the collage, now on display. Inspired by this year’s Summer Reading Club (SRC) theme, Zander will create more sculptures, so visit often and see all the many wonderful pieces come together.
Portage County District Library’s service spotlight for July is SearchOhio. Can’t find what you need in our library catalog? Try SearchOhio, an Ohio public library resource sharing consortium, allowing you to request items from participating Ohio public libraries. You can request books, DVDs, CDs, and more. Generally, books and other print items are checked out for 21 days and DVDs are checked out for 7 days. The loan period for other items is determined by the owning libraries, and all items are renewable if no one else is waiting for the same title. This is a free service brought to Portage County residents by the Portage Library Consortium
Begin by searching the Portage Library Consortium’s online catalog. Click the SearchOhio button at the top or bottom of that page. The catalogs of all the partner libraries will be searched. You will see a record for the item you searched or a list of similar titles. Click on the title of the item you wish to request. If you start by logging into your record first, you will still see the SearchOhio button when you search our catalog. Return your items at any Portage County library or Library Express book return. The library will send them back to the proper library. For additional FAQs on this free service, visit www.portagelibrary.org and select the SearchOhio icon.
