Why pay for expensive courses when you can take them for free at the Library? Our computer and technology programs meet customers at whatever level of knowledge they are, from novices to seasoned users.



The Library indexes obituaries as a service to the community. If you find a person you are searching for, we can email a scan of the obit to you. Out-of-state residents are charged $3 per obituary scan.



Let us help protect your memories and important historic documents. We will digitize up to ten items* for you every three months at no charge. Our team is also available to help with scanning, editing and file storage.


DOG Licenses

We're going to the dogs! We now offer dog licenses at all of our Library locations. Stop in to pick up some materials for you and a purchase or renew your Lucas County dog license at the same time.



Each Library location is home to a public meeting room that is available free of charge. These rooms, in fulfillment of our mission, are available for educational, instructional or civic programs when the space is available.



From our Homework Helper program to one-on-one computer training, to GED classes and online tutors, we offer a variety of services to meet your lifelong educational needs!
