LIBRARY RESOURCES
BPL Services
Personalized Picks: Family Edition
Let the BPL team help you find the perfect bundle of books for the whole family! Fill out a family version of our Personalized Picks form on the BPL website (link). Let us know your family's interests, ages/reading levels, and how many and what types of materials you'd like. We prepare a bundle of materials for you for pickup through our touchless curbside pickup service.
Book-a-Librarian
Book-a-Librarian (BAL) is an opportunity for patrons to make an online hour Zoom appointment to work one-on-one with library staff. These appointments are for questions and information needs that require extra time and attention with a staff member.
Obtaining a Library Card
Obtaining a Library Card
We believe library cards are life-changing resources, which is why we hope every student in the Bexley City Schools district is able to have his or her own library card. If your child is without a library card, please email for a special registration form. Once the form has been completed and submitted, we will mail his or her BPL Card directly to you at home.
Using BPL Curbside Service
Using BPL Curbside Service
Using your library card, you can place holds on Bexley Public Library materials by phoning your request to 614-231-2793 or by reserving materials via the BPL Website. You will be notified by email or phone once your materials are ready for pickup and should come the Library parking lot, or ring the bell of the BPL auditorium door, where a BPL staff member will safely deliver materials to you. Curbside service is available Monday through Thursday from 10:00 am until 7:00 pm., and Friday and Saturday from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm.
Using Digital Downloads
Using Digital Downloads
There are many ways to read a book. We want your children to find the medium that works best for them. We encourage you to teach them how to access e-books and audiobooks via computers, tablets, e-readers, and smartphones for free. All they need is a library card and the Overdrive Media Console app. To browse available titles, visit www.bexleylibrary.org and click on the Download ebooks, audiobooks, & digital magazines link at the top left-hand side of the page.
