GMPL now offers Library Take Out

GMPL is offering Library Take Out Services.

UPDATE 2/8/21 GMPL will resume special hours starting MONDAY, FEBRUARY 8. Prior visiting rules are still in effect.

  • Masks are required to visit with no exceptions. If you cannot wear a mask, GMPL offers services to get the books you need.
  • If you are ill, please stay home.
  • Return all items to our outside book drop before entering the building.
  • Visits are limited to 30 minutes.
UPDATE 11/19/20: GMPL has temporarily closed our doors to the public due to the rise in COVID-19 cases in our area. Patrons may make a 15-minute appointment for computer, copy, and fax services by calling the Library at 440-926-3317. Until further notice, please use our Library Take Out service for any items you may need. Please use the instructions above or information below to place your order.
UPDATE 9/8/20: You've told us you love our Library Take Out, but not all the bags. We've listened and changed our system! Now you will find your materials wrapped in paper with your last name on a blue cart in the vestibule. Bags are available if you need them!
GMPL's goal is to maintain the health and safety of both patrons and staff members.
Library Take Out allows patrons to pick up items without having to enter the Library. Families and/or individuals are able to return items they have been holding on to and take out new materials through this program.
