Welcome to the Licking County Library.

All Ages Welcome

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.

The staff and trustees are very thankful that Licking County residents have been so supportive of their library! 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. Our library has positioned itself as a community hub—one that is a natural fit.
