The Quest for COOL Libraries

Join the Quest for COOL Libraries. Your library card at the Cardington-Lincoln Public Library gives you free access to the resources of thirteen libraries in the Consortium of Ohio Libraries. That's right, we're COOL! And, we are on a Quest to highlight the fact that your library card works at any COOL library and items borrowed from any COOL library can be returned to any COOL library.

Each library offers an inviting space and friendly staff just waiting welcome you through their doors.

The Quest:

You can join the Quest and be eligible for COOL prizes by traveling to visit COOL libraries between November 1, 2019 and January 10, 2020. Stop in to pick up a passport with a map (only one is needed) and start checking out books at any of the thirteen member libraries in the Consortium of Ohio Libraries. Once an item is checked out, get your passport stamped and a raffle ticket to enter a drawing for a prize at each library visited. Visit all the libraries specified in the rules and you get entered in the grand prize drawing.

This event will take you across Ohio to check out books from any of the thirteen COOL libraries. All books checked out can be returned to any COOL library or your home library. Prize drawings will be announced on January 16.

About COOL:

The Consortium of Ohio Libraries (COOL) is a group of independent libraries working together to provide high-quality library services to their communities. Currently there are twelve libraries which make up the consortium. Wilmington Public Library of Clinton County will be joining in the very near future bringing the number to thirteen. These libraries work together by sharing materials and resources. For our patrons, this means there are more items available resulting in a wider selection and shorter hold periods. Patrons of member libraries can use their card to check out items at any of the twelve, soon to be thirteen, libraries. Also, items checked out at a member library can be returned to any library within the consortium.
