Curbside Service

     The safety of our patrons and staff remains our highest priority. For this reason, we continue to offer our handy curbside service to pick up COVID tests and library material.

     If you or anyone in your family are experiencing any flu symptoms, such as cough, congestion, or fever, and you wish to pick up a COVID test, please do not enter the library. We ask that you contact us at 419-422-1712 and request to pick up a test. We'll schedule a time for you to pick up the test, and ask that you park in one of our curbside parking spots. When you arrive, please contact us at the number on the sign, let us know the number of the space you are in, and we'll be happy to bring you a test.  

     Curbside can also be used to pick up library material. Patrons are able to request material by phone at 419-422-1712 or through the library's online catalog. Please wait until you've been notified through your preferred means of contact that your items are ready before coming to the library to pick up your items. After you've received notification, please call us at 419-422-1712 to schedule a time to pickup your items at your convenience. Once at the library, park in a curbside spot, and give us a call. We will happily deliver your items right to your car!

Telescope

With funding from the Friends of the Library and expertise from the Millstream Astronomy Club, the Library launched a Lending Telescope Program on June 22, 2017.The goal of the program is to help foster scientific literacy, stimulate an interest in astronomy, and provide people who have never looked through a telescope the chance to experience the excitement that comes from discovery.

Patrons age eighteen years or older with a valid Findlay-Hancock County Public Library card, will be able check out the telescope for a two-week period. Because of the cost of the telescope, there are requirements and restrictions when checking it out through the Adult Services Department. For more information, contact the Adult Services Department at 419-422-1712.

The New Hampshire Astronomical Society started placing telescopes and educational materials in selected libraries in New Hampshire in December 2008 Today over 100 telescopes are loaned from libraries in New Hampshire and the program is spreading to other states.
