Due to construction, the Ralph Ellison Library and Southern Oaks Library are providing curbside services only until further notice. Watch our website for updates about their reopening.


All Metro Library locations are in the "Grab & Go" stage. In this stage, customers can come into a library to use a computer, print/copy/fax/scan, and briefly browse the shelves. Masks are required for entry into library facilities with no exceptions. Customers without a mask will be served by curbside service only. Click here for more information.



Tumble into a new read at your local library! Want access to free literacy tools and family entertainment? Your library has a new children’s literacy eResource available with your library account, Tumblebooks! Download the Tumblebooks app through your phone or tablet or browse books online through your internet browser.

Tumblebooks features over 1100 titles for grades K-6 including animated, graphic novels, read-along books and National Geographic videos. The service also includes books in Spanish and French. 

If you are a current Speakaboos user, access to Speakaboos will be discontinued. Speakaboos, like Tumblebooks, offered access to interactive eBooks for children. Adobe Flash Player, the software used to support Speakaboos will no longer be supported after Dec. 31, 2020, making the resource inaccessible.
