Library offers a variety of digital services

| April 7, 2020

The Coshocton Public Library system offers a variety of digital services to keep busy while staying at home. Borrow free e-books, audiobooks, movies, television shows, and magazines through the Ohio Digital Library and Hoopla. Use the Ohio Web Library to access educational tools, ancestry information, hobby and craft ideas, health databases, and more informational resources. Take online courses with Lynda.com in order to achieve personal or professional goals. Help links are available on the library’s website and YouTube channel.

All digital resources can be accessed 24/7 with a Coshocton Public Library card. If you do not have a library card, you can apply for an e-card by visiting www.coshoctonlibrary.org. The digital card registration link is listed under the Digital Library tab on the homepage. Once registration is complete, an e-card will be emailed within 24-48 hours. If you already have a library card but need to secure a forgotten pin number or have questions about digital services, please email [email protected].

If you do not have Internet access at home, free Wi-Fi access is available outside of the library building. The network name is: CPL-Public. A password is not required.

In addition to digital resources, the library is offering virtual programming through Facebook Live. Children’s programs are presented on the Coshocton Public Library Facebook page Tuesday through Friday at 10 a.m. If you are not able to watch programs live, the videos are recorded and available on the library’s Facebook page and website.

A complete list of virtual programs and resources is available on the homepage of the library’s website, www.coshoctonlibrary.org. This list is updated regularly as staff work to provide virtual library programs and find excellent resources to share with patrons. Library staff can be reached during regular, library hours by emailing [email protected].
