Services and Programs

The library provides free Wi-Fi and a wide range of in-house services,.

The "Coppa Collection" is an extensive collection of local events on video. Find out more here.

We are also happy to provide a number of special services for children.

For upcoming events for children and adults, see our calendar.

More special services provided for adults using OPL include the following:

Interlibrary Loan:

When OPL and the CLEVNET library consortium do not own a book, journal, or other material that you need, we will try to obtain the item from a library outside the consortium.                                                                         

There is a minimum $2.00 charge per item for this service.


Can't get to the library?  Let the library come to you!  Patrons who are unable to get to the library because of illness, physical limitations, or lack of transportation may request to join OPL's Homebound Program.  There is no age restriction to qualify for this service but it is limited to those that live in the Orrville City School District.  Contact the library for more information.


The "Hold-That-Book" program at OPL allows patrons to fill out a form selecting their favorite authors from a list.   When any of those selected authors release new material, your name will automatically be placed on the holds list.                   


This service allows you to reserve a 30-minute session where you can have one-on-one time with a librarian for basic emedia and computer assistance.  Sessions must be booked in advance and are dependent on staff availability.

Electronic Updates:

You can receive library notifications via e-mail, including holds that are available, overdue alerts, and account status updates through My Account on the online catalog.                                                                               

We also have an electronic newsletter that allows you to be the first to get news on all our new materials and events. Click here to sign up.

Meeting Rooms & Quiet Study Rooms:

The library has several meeting rooms and quiet study rooms that may be used by the public. Find out more.


A wi-fi hotspot is a device that allows you to connect your mobile device (e.g. laptop, smartphone, tablet, etc.) to the Internet. And it's free to borrow from the library, just like a book!  This service is available to patrons 18 years and older with a library account in good standing.  Hotspots may be checked out for seven (7) days once per month per household.  You can also reserve a hotspot for a two-week lending period once per year per household.  Hotspots cannot be renewed.  Contact the Information Desk for more information.

Zoo passes:

Through the generosity of our Friends group, you are able to borrow free passes to the Akron Zoo!  This service is available to patrons 18 years and older with a library card in good standing.  Passes cover the cost of general admission and parking for a maximum of two (2) adults and four (4) children.  Passes are good for everyday general admission, not for special events nor for gift shop discounts.  Passes are checked out for three (3) days and cannot be renewed.  Passes can be borrowed once per quarter.  Contact the Information Desk for more information
