24/7 library Hold Pickup Lockers

Can’t make it to pick up your holds during the library’s open hours?

Lacking transportation or live too far to walk to a library location?

Try our BookHives!

BookHives are library material pickup lockers that are available for patron access 24/7.

In 2022, thanks to a grant funded by the State Library of Ohio and the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the library’s Outreach Department expanded its reach by installing BookHives at the Zane Village Mobile Home Park in Chillicothe and in the Village of Clarksburg.

In 2024, the library added new BookHives in the Village of Adelphi and the Village of Massieville.

New BookHives added in 2024!

Adelphi BookHive

Adelphi BookHive

The Village of Adelphi BookHive is located at 11879 Main St., Adelphi, near the Adelphi United Methodist Church.

Massieville BookHive

Massieville BookHive

The Village of Massieville BookHive is located at 2410 Massieville Rd., Chillicothe at the Horizon substation.

The process to use a BookHive to pick up library materials is easy:

  1. Register for a free library card online if you need one.
  2. Search the library catalog for books, movies and more, and, when placing a hold, select a BookHive from the drop-down menu for the Pickup Library.
  3. We’ll let you know when your items are ready to be picked up from the BookHive.
  4. Next, visit the BookHive, scan your library card or enter it and your PIN on the BookHive screen’s keypad, and a locker door will pop open with your materials.
  5. Retrieve the materials, close the door, and a checkout receipt will be printed. That’s it!

If by chance, you happen to close the locker door before retrieving your materials, you will be locked out and will need to call the library for assistance. Please call 740-702-4111 and a staff member will assist you.

The BookHives are stocked twice per week. If you return books in the BookHive book drops, please allow additional time for them to be scanned in and removed from your account.

Library book returns, 24/7 public WiFi access, and pop-up stops from The Bee Mobile Library are also provided at BookHive locations.

For more information about the BookHives, contact the Outreach Department at 740-702-4111 or
