Bring the kiddos to KidStuff for a fun-filled program of music and activities! 

Our first KidStuff of the season is on Saturday, October 28, at 10 AM in the Memorial Book Room at the main library.  The program is called "It's as American as Apple Pie" and will feature a performance by Lima Symphony Orchestra musicians, along with interactive and multi-sensory activities.  As always ---it's free!



Main Library Supporting Meterologist Jason Mikell's REAL MEN WEAR PINK fundraiser to Benefit the American Cancer Society


During October, the main library is helping local meteorologist Jason Mikell raise money for the American Cancer Society.  Donation cans are located at the Check Out desk; any amount is welcome.  Donate $5 or more to REAL MEN WEAR PINK and we'll give you a pink drawstring tote bag! 

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. 

The Stingray Way

Our Stingray Way event has been rescheduled! Join us on Saturday, September 30th as the Newport Aquarium brings stingrays to the main library. Learn all about these awesome sea creatures. It's not quite a trip to the beach, but it's pretty close! No need to reserve your spot, just stop by for one of our 2 sessions in the Memorial Book Room.
