All Lima Public Library locations will be closed on Monday, May 29, in observance of Memorial Day.
Food is not permitted in any Library location, including the main library in Lima, and branch libraries in Cairo, Elida, Lafayette and Spencerville. Drinks with lids are permitted.
On May 1, 2017, Lima Public Library became a tobacco-free campus. This means that the use of smokeless and smoking tobacco products are prohibited on Library grounds, at all library locations, including Lima, Cairo, Elida, Lafayette, and Spencerville. The ban includes e-cigarettes and other nicotine products.
We are proud to announce that through a partnership with Altrusa International, Inc of Lima Ohio, a local service organization, we will have MP3 players with a narrated walking tour of downtown Lima available for check out beginning Saturday, May 13th at 11am. Altrusa developed the tour to highlight Lima's downtown historical buildings, businesses and even local figures. The tour will be available on a continuous basis through the library, which is the tour’s starting and ending location.
