The Main Library has a collection of books, clippings and microfilms, focusing on Licking County, Ohio. Use the links below for greater description.   Our branch locations also have a limited number of Licking County histories and local files. 

Librarians will be glad to assist your research. We make every attempt to answer your question using the available indexes and reference tools in a reasonable amount of time. Staff time is limited, so we try to take the questions in the order in which they are received.

E-MAIL to Ask-A-Question. Please include full name, e-mail address, and your city and state. Leaving an alternate e-mail address or a postal mail address may help if there are any problems connecting to your primary     e-mail.  Thank you.
