“This is an exciting time for the library,” announced Melissa Kipp, Library Director. “With the support of the voters in Mt. Gilead, we can now not only continue our excellence in service, but also deliver new, more and better things.”
With the announcement on Thursday, November 5, 2020 of Morrow County moving to COVID-19 Alert Level Red, the Mount Gilead Public Library is following its plan to move to curbside services. MGPL will continue to serve customers with curbside services only while the alert level remains raised.

Both college students and non-college students participate in Aspire classes.
Every summer for more than twenty years, the Mount Gilead Public Library has offered a summer reading program to keep kids and their family’s active and reading all summer long. While this year certainly had its challenges, the library is happy to call its 2020 Summer Reading Program a success.
Per Gov. Mike DeWine's announcement, the Mount Gilead Public Library will require all able individuals to wear a mask. Children under 10 may be in the library without a mask, though wearing one is highly recommended. We will continue to limit the number of people in the library at one time as well as continuing with our already in place social distancing measures. Curbside pick-up remains an option for all current card holders.
