My Account

Go directly to your account to check holds, due date, fines or even to renew items that you are just not quite ready to return yet.


Genealogy and local history, homework help and online resources. It is all here and free to use.

Please remember, the library has WIFI available outside the building and there is a plethora of digital content to download like e-books, audiobooks, magazines, comics, and videos available through Overdrive (Libby) and Hoopla.

Wanting to serve you better!


The Loudonville Public Library is looking to get your opinion on how we can best meet the needs of our community via materials, programs, services, and community engagement. 

 We are conducting an online survey to better understand the needs of our community so that we can continue to grow and evolve to best serve our patrons. 

 Please take this brief online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8CF9KX8

 After completing the survey, you have the option to enter a raffle drawing or participate in a focus group.  If you are interested, please provide your contact information.  If you would like to remain anonymous you may do so, but you will not be placed into the drawing.  The State Library of Ohio will be facilitating a focus group to learn more about Loudonville Public Library users and the local community.
