The Ohio Department of Health and the Oak Harbor Public Library have joined together to provide free rapid COVID tests. Stop in at the library to pick up a test kit. Download an app to a phone or computer with a web camera, then take the test. Within 15 minutes you will receive your test results.
If you have symptoms of Covid-19, call the library at 419-898-7001 to arrange contactless pickup of the test kits. The library can help with downloading the app but will not give out medical advice. Check out all our digital resources on the website. The digital resources are free.
The library has limited supplies of the Federal and Ohio Income Tax Instruction booklets. They can also print out any forms you may require.
If book clubs are more your thing, the library has them.
