For our second year, Caldwell Public Library is participating in the CALDWELL COMMUNITY SEED LIBRARY program in partnership with the Noble County OSU Extension office. Various seeds are available to take home, as well as a new collection of gardening books they have provided to us for our patrons to borrow. Come check out our “Library Gardening Center” and READ & GROW with us!
Beginning Monday, Feb. 28th our library and other libraries will pause requests from other libraries.
Ohio supports a service that enables public and academic libraries to share their library materials with each other thru a statewide delivery service (cargo) that provides library users wider access to resources.
It has become necessary to again change delivery (cargo) service providers. The State Library recognizes the delivery service has been challenging for both libraries and their patrons.
We encourage patrons to continue placing holds for library materials at this time, but just expect some delay receiving your items.
Requests made before Monday Feb 28th will be attempted to be fulfilled as normal.
After Monday Feb 28th the material that we own will be available for holds for our library card holders. This will continue until April 25th. when system wide holds will be restored.
You still have access to digital downloads from our online catalog, thru The Ohio Digital Library.
We are hoping for a smooth transition and appreciate your patience.
If you have any questions feel free to call the Library at: 740-732-4506.
Did you hear the news? February story time is about Pets! Story time starts Tuesday, Feb. 1 and will be held every Tuesday in February from 10:30 to11:00 am.

Add something different to your child’s story reading time at home!
Now you and your child can view 8 different videos of books recorded in both English and American Sign Language. According to Serving Every Ohioan (SEO):
We are pleased to announce an opportunity to enjoy videos of popular children’s books, recorded in both English and American Sign Language. The videos are available for viewing in a unique Niche Academy hosted by the SEO Service Center. The new videos are presented in partnership with Ohio Citizens for Deaf Cultures, Worthington Libraries and the State Library of Ohio. The project was funded through a federal Institute of Museum and Library Services LSTA grant, awarded by the State Library of Ohio.
The entertaining videos were created and edited by Worthington Libraries with Ohio Citizens for Deaf Cultures providing the ASL interpreters. Each video contains the illustrated story, ASL interpretation, audible narration, and closed-captioning.
