We're More Than Just Books

              Everybody knows the library has books of all kinds to help people further their education and just for enjoyment.  Almost everyone now thinks of the library as a great place to go to use a free public computer, but there are many services offered by your local Meigs County Library that you may not even realize are available.  Many of these services are available for free or at minimal cost.  The library has copy machines that are available for use by the public with black and white copies only 10 cents per page and color copies for 50 cents per page.  We offer fax service that is free to a local or toll free number and $1 per page to any domestic long distance number.  You can also receive faxes at the library for $1 per page.  Color copy service is available only at the Pomeroy Library.  Black and white copies and fax service are available at all library locations.
              The library’s notary service has been quite popular.  We have a notary available in each of our buildings any time the library is open.  There is no charge for notary service.  One of the relatively new services that the library offers is Passport photos.  Passport photos can be made at the Pomeroy Library only.  A special camera is used to make the photos to the exact specifications that are needed and you receive two photos on a sheet for $10.  This type of photos is used not only for passports, but also nursing licenses, concealed carry permits and for various other identification needs.  With the addition of this service, Meigs County residents no longer have to travel outside of the county to have a passport photo taken. 
              Another fairly new service that the library provides is disk cleaning.  Bring your scratched and scuffed disks of all types to the library for re-surfacing.  The charge is $1 per disk and the process takes about 3 minutes per disk.  We can resurface disks of all types including music and computer CD’s, DVD, Blu-Ray and game disks (Xbox, Playstation and Wii).  You will be amazed at the results.  This service is available only at the Pomeroy Library.
              The Pomeroy Library is open from 9 am – 8 pm Monday through Friday, 9am – 5pm on Saturday and 1pm – 5pm on Sunday.  The Middleport Library is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 10am – 6pm.  The Racine Library is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10am – 6pm.  The Eastern Public Library, in the Eastern Elementary School, is open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 10am – 6pm.  Our evening hours and variety of locations make it convenient for you to take advantage of the many services the library has to offer.  We look forward to seeing you soon at the library.
