Library Fall Hours Include Sundays
The Pickaway County District Public Library will be open on Sundays 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. beginning Sept. 9 until Memorial Day. This includes the Main Library in Circleville and the Floyd E. Younkin Branch in Ashville.
“Families are encouraged to spend Sunday afternoons at the library,” says Library Director Jim Guenther. “This may be the only time some families have to visit the library together.”
The Sunday hours at both library locations coincide with the academic year and students can benefit from the extra hours of access to reference materials.
Patrons can check out books, movies, books on CD and music, as well as use the computers. Both library locations have wireless Internet access. Patrons can sign up for electronic newsletters about new materials and learn more about the self-contained audiobooks called PlayAways.
Both library sites will be closed on holiday Sundays such as Easter, Mother’s Day and Memorial Day.
The goal of the library is to provide Pickaway County residents with access to innovative, useful library services that will allow them to learn throughout their lives; enjoy their recreation time; and become involved in their community.
Many resources are available 24 hours a day through the library’s website: www.pickawaylib.org. Under Online Reference, Online Databases, users can read magazines, newspapers, biographies, health information and search encyclopedias from their home computers.
The library offers more than 138,000 items for patrons to checkout. Last year, the library system circulated over 437,000 items to its 35,300 registered borrowers.
