Using Your Library from Home

Health and safety during library visits is our number one priority, but sometimes there’s no place like home. We are working hard to make as many online library services and programs available to you as possible. If you choose to stay at home, know that you have a wealth of resources that are available to you. If you are new to the online experience and need some guidance, we are just a phone call or email away. Call 330-688-3295 ext. 4 or email a librarian at information@smfpl.org. Stay connected with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube. For the latest in library services, visit www.smfpl.org.
