Welcome to the Licking County Library.

Parking Lot Improvements Are Underway

Something is always happening at Licking County Library! For those who use our Downtown Newark location, there is construction happening with our parking lot and drive-up window.

There will be certain areas closed at times. We have a brand new extended lot that is open and ready to be used. If you don't have the time to drop off your books inside, please feel free to drop them at our West Newark location just a couple of miles on West Main Street. If you need assistance, please call our Circulation Department directly at 740.349.5536.

Thank you for your patience!
