Thank you to The Friends of the Library and the Morgan County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society for sponsoring, as well as assisting with the library and genealogy resource presence in the Floral Hall.  Stop by to browse the displays, spin the prize wheel, and see what is happening at your libraries as well as with the Morgan County Genealogy Society.  Just a reminder…both libraries will be closed on Saturday, September 10, to allow staff to meet with all of you at fair!  Hope to see you there!


What Can Your Libraries Do For You?


Looking to access your libraries on the go?  We can help!  Curbside service continues to be available at both library locations.  Simply give us a call and let us know what items you would like to view.  We will set a pickup time that is convenient for you and items will be set outside for contactless delivery.  COVID-19 tests are still available at both library locations for curbside pickup as well. 

Would you rather have items delivered to your homes and/or organizations?  No problem!  The Bookmobile visits different areas of the county each week.  If you would like to be added to our schedule, please let us know!  We visit all areas of Morgan County and are always ready to add new stops.  There are no requirements for this program other than we can only make stops within Morgan County.  Don’t forget about all the digital resources at your fingertips anytime.  Visit to see selections and start accessing today.   Please let us know how we can assist you.  Take care and Happy Reading!


We look forward to serving all of you at your Kate Love Simpson Library Morgan County Libraries.
