Frequently Asked Questions

When will the library reopen?

In response to Gov. Mike DeWine’s orders closing all K-12 schools and prohibiting mass gatherings, Fairfield County District Library’s Board of Trustees has determined that all library locations will remain closed through at least April 6.

When are my items due?

Due dates for all items have been extended to April 13. Because of these unusual circumstances, we will work with anyone with items that were already past due before the closure. Please disregard any overdue notices you may receive.

Are book drops staying open?

All Fairfield County District Library book drops are locked. Please keep everything you have checked out until we reopen. The library no longer charges fines and no fees will be charged to your account during this time.

What about my holds?

Holds listed as “Held” will be kept at your pick-up location for 5 days after our locations reopen. Please disregard the pick-up date listed on your account. You may continue to place holds for items through our catalog. All holds will show as “Suspended” until we reopen.
