Lima Library App

  Have you heard about our new app? This mobile app allows you to search our catalog from anywhere, view and renew items you have checked out, keep track of library card numbers for your whole family, access our digital resources and more. Out shopping and see a great title you'd love to read? Use our app to see if the library owns that title before you buy; AND place a hold on it directly from the app!


The Market Street entrance to the main Library is closed while we work on removing the concrete pad under the brick archway.  This work will allow us to widen the lanes under the archway, making it easier to drive through as you are dropping off books and/or driving through. 

Please use the High Street entrance to the parking lot while this work is being completed. 

We apologize for the inconvenience.
