The Pickaway County District Public Library is now sharing an online catalog with 10 other libraries, including Columbus Metropolitan Library, Worthington Libraries and Southwest Public Libraries.
This partnership through the Central Library Consortium (CLC) serves 1.4 million residents across six counties with nearly 1.2 million unique titles, doubling the number of titles previously offered in the online catalog.
I encourage you to place holds online, especially for the newest releases of books and movies. Pickaway County patrons have first access to locally-owned items, so donít let your place in the holds queue alarm you, especially for the newest releases. Once all of Pickaway Countyís holds have been filled for a particular title, the item is then available to fill hold requests at other CLC libraries.
The CLC is a 25-year-old partnership among library systems who share materials, resources, servers, licenses, group purchases and even staff while remaining strong, independent library systems. Libraries in the consortium include: Pickaway County District Public Library, Alexandria, Columbus, Fairfield County, Grandview Heights, Marysville, Pickerington, Plain City, Southwest, Wagnalls Memorial and Worthington.
Please feel free to ask for assistance with requesting titles at the Information Desk.
Thank you for your interest in the library.
