Beyond Books Collection

You know we have books, but times are changing. Find out what you can check out at CRCPL Beyond Books.

Libraries have long harnessed and promoted the power of shared resources. A “sharing economy” is one that utilizes technology to enable users to share resources, goods, services, and even skills. You’ve likely borrowed books, movies, and music from our shared library collection. Maybe you’ve used a library meeting room, or you’ve shared a storytime or drive-up movie with other families.

But times are changing, our patrons’ needs are changing. To meet those needs, we’re continually expanding our checkout offerings Beyond Books.

Explore our Beyond Books collection below, and use the library catalog to place holds for items. (You must call 740-702-4145 or visit the library to Book-A-Bike; online holds are not permitted.)



  • Patrons of all ages are welcome to check out Beyond Books items. You must sign a Hold Harmless/Liability Waiver to check out Beyond Books items. Children who wish to check out a Beyond Books item must have a parent/guardian name on file.
  • Beyond Books items check out for 14 days with no renewals. Bikes have different lending terms – read them here.
  • Patrons may only check out one Beyond Books item at a time, except for WiFi Hotspots and Chromebooks, which may be checked out simultaneously. Bikes are another exception, as patrons may check out two at a time if you’d like to bring a guest along for a ride.
  • Do not return Beyond Books items in library book drops. Please return them to a staff member.
