The library now has tax forms for 2016 available. In the lobby of the main library you'll find a bookshelf filled with the forms that we currently have available. The State of Ohio is not sending out printed forms this year, but we do have their instruction booklet available. Please note: the instruction booklets for IRS forms are not yet available, but we expect to receive them soon.
Thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Lima Library Association, Mobile Hotspots are now available to check-out at Lima Public Library. Hotspots provide internet access to those that may not have it at home. These devices are excellent for students to complete homework while the library is not open, and for job seekers to continue the search! And of course they are perfect for those looking to build their internet skills in the comfort of their own home- practice makes perfect!
