Overdrive Not Working

Our popular digital branch, Overdrive, is not functioning currently as we work to implement our our new computer system that integrates all three county libraries into one system.

We hope to have Overdrive back and running as soon as possible, and will let you know as soon as that happens. We know how many of you use and love it!

We apologize and thank you for your patience. As always, thank you for supporting your libraries.


  • Our new rates have gone into effect.
    • Fines for books, magazines, and audio recordings are .20 per day, per title. Most books, magazines, and audio recordings circulate for 14 days.
    • New fiction (previously 3 day loan) now circulates for 7 days.
    • Movie fines are $1.00 per day, per title. Movies circulate for 7 days.
    • Non-resident cards are $30 per year.
  • Thank you for your patience while we learn our new computer system. It’s an exciting time for local libraries! You can now search our catalog, our catalog just for kids, and a union catalog of all three local libraries. This project was funded by the County of Venango. Now anyone who has a library card from any of the three libraries can use their card at any of the three libraries!

Closed for Staff Training

The library is closed Monday, September 14 for staff training.

Regular hours resume Tuesday, September 15.

Thank you for your patience while we upgrade and get accustomed to a new circulation system!
