Curbside Only Service

The Perry Cook Memorial Public Library (PCML) serves the Northmor school district, which includes part of Richland County. Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in our community PCML will revert to curbside only service effective Monday, December 7, 2020. Public access to the building will not be available.

Our Serving Every Ohioan (SEO) deliveries will continue and patrons can continue to place and pickup holds. Our staff will be happy to pull any materials requested, either over the phone or through email, and hold them as well. Holds may also be place online at or through the SEO app, available for Android and iOS.

Thanks to funding through the Office of Budget Management and the Ohio Legislature we have been able to boost our wifi signal in the parking lot. This signal is available 24/7. Copying, printing and notary services are available by appointment.

Super Snack bags for children, courtesy of the Children’s Hunger Alliance will also continue to be available for pickup, as well as tags from our Giving Tree, should you wish to donate to the seniors in our community.

As COVID ravages our community we are doing all we can to protect enough staff to keep the library open. We hope you will join us as we continue with social distancing, masks and diligent sanitation to do whatever we can to protect the library for our community.

Please call 419-362-7181 with questions or to request materials for holds.
