Welcome to the Licking County Library.

Your Community Hub!

Licking County Library is committed to serving our community of lifelong learners. We reach all corners of our service area by providing free, cutting-edge materials, dynamic programming and learning tools. With continued community support, LCL has been able to actively engage people of all ages while fostering meaningful relationships that begin during the early stages of literacy. Reinventing ourselves as a relevant and innovative resource is something we strive to achieve. We have positioned ourselves as a community hub—one that is a natural fit.

Services & Research

Licking County Library wants our community to thrive! Everyone's goals are different and LCL's services and resources reflect those goals. Whether you are a teacher looking for a book collection, a job seeker needing access to a computer, a retiree looking to brush up on technology skills or a researcher looking for specifics on a local veteran—we are here to help you exceed your expectations. Please use our LIVE CHAT option in the lower right-hand corner of your screen for immediate help. Note: There are times that we will be assisting other customers and the chat option will be off.
