As you walk through the front doors of the library, the children’s department is located through the giant Storybook directly on your left. You can’t miss it! Inside you will find many things to read and many fun things to do. We hope you visit us soon!

If the Medina Schools are closed, will storyhour be cancelled?

Yes, storyhour will be cancelled if the schools close. If schools are not closed, but Miss Mack feels it is necessary to cancel storyhour, a call will be made at least one hour before storyhour is scheduled to begin.

 

Does my child need a library card to take books out of the library?

Yes, your child must have a library card to take books out of the library. If he/she does not have one, please fill out an application at the front desk before the start of storyhour. The first day of storyhour is quite hectic and it is a great help to desk staff if cards are issued in advance. Your child’s library card will be kept at the front desk for the entirety of the program.

 

Where can I view pictures of past events at the library?

Here are the pictures of all the fun we have at the library.

 

Can I suggest events for the library?

Yes, just fill out our survey and let us know.
