New books on the shelf at Maxwell Library!!! Books on the shelf at Maxwell Library!!!

Great news at Maxwell!

After just over 3 weeks of not being able to check-in items, we can now check them in! We are also able to once again fill holds!

I want to give a big thank you to our staff, volunteers, and Board for all of their hard work in inopportune conditions the past few weeks. Yesterday, Sunday, many staff and volunteers came in for over 5 hours to check-in and shelve all of our items that have been boxed up and stacked throughout the library. Because of their dedication and hard work, all of the items we had were checked-in and a vast majority were shelved.

As such, we now have so many holds available that we had to expand to a book cart. Our new book, movie, and audiobook shelves are overflowing with great items waiting to be taken home by you!

Accounts may not be completely up-to-date, but we can look into any issues you see. Our email is not yet working due to the ransomware attack, but we can be reached at or by calling or stopping in.

Thank you for your patience over the past month as OCPL has dealt with this difficult situation. We hope to see you in the library soon!
