The Amesville Locker Library

Located behind Village Productions (formerly the Grange)

To use the electronic lockers:

  1. Reserve library items from the library catalog as you normally would.
  2. When prompted, choose Amesville Locker Library as the pickup location.
  3. Receive a notification on the day your items arrive at the lockers. Depending on your account’s communication preference, this will be a phone call, text, or email.
  4. When you get a notification, you’ll be able to retrieve your items that same day after 5pm.

To pick up your items:

  1. Enter your library card number on the keypad or scan your card’s barcode.
  2. The locker(s) containing your items will pop open.
  3. Retrieve your items within two minutes; after two minutes, the locker won’t open again without library staff assistance.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: How do I get a library locker?
A: This service differs from a typical PO Box–every time you reserve library items to be picked up from this location, a different locker will be assigned to you.
Q: How often will items be delivered to the lockers?
A: Twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays.
Q: Why can’t I pick up my items before 5pm the day I get my notification?
A: Locker delivery coordination has been carefully planned around staff schedules.

A: Yes! If it fits in a locker, we’ll bring it to you. This includes board games, hotspots, audiobooks, CDs, DVDs, and video games (sorry, no bicycles).
Q: How long will items be available to pick up?
A: You’ll have seven days to retrieve your items from the lockers.

A: The Amesville Locker Library is possible thanks to a grant from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), awarded by the State Library of Ohio.
