Drive-Thru and Reference Service at Main Library

Rodman Public Library is pleased to announce that Drive-Thru service and telephone reference service are now available at the Main Library. The times for this service are:

  • Monday-Wednesday 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. (Please note: Monday, May 25 CLOSED)
  • Thursday-Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

To use our Drive-Thru service, start by requesting library materials. You may do this by using our online catalog,, or by calling the library at 330-821-2665 with a valid library card.

If you place your request by calling the library, plan to have a day and time in mind for when you would like to pick up your items. We ask that you give staff at least a day to get your items ready.

If you place your request through our online catalog, the staff will contact you when your items are ready for pickup. The automated hold notifications have been disabled during this time.

The items will be checked out to you the day that you will pick them up and placed in a bag with your receipt attached to the bag.

When you arrive at the Main Library, drive into the bookmobile garage from the High Street entrance and roll down your passenger’s window. The staff member will verify your pickup and place the bag directly into your trunk or through the passenger window. Stay in your car during the transaction.

Please note that items from the Rodman Branch or Louisville Public Library may take longer to arrive.

Returned items will not be accepted through the drive-thru and must be returned via the drive-up book return on the east side of the Main Library. The book return at the Branch Library will remain closed during this time. This procedure will prevent any contact, keeping both our staff and you safe.

Donations for the Friends of Rodman Library are not being accepted at this time.

While we look forward to re-opening as usual, we know that Governor DeWine and the Ohio Dept. of Public Health is urging limitations on public gathering. We continue to work towards adding services gradually, including re-opening our buildings and resuming Bookmobile routes, in a way that will keep our staff and our community as safe as possible. We encourage everyone to continue to use our digital services, and we look forward to seeing you as we begin Drive-Thru Service.
