LIBRARY RESOURCES
BPL Services
Personalized Picks: Family Edition
Let the BPL team help you find the perfect bundle of books for the whole family! Fill out a family version of our Personalized Picks form on the BPL website (link). Let us know your family's interests, ages/reading levels, and how many and what types of materials you'd like.
Book-a-Librarian
Book-a-Librarian (BAL) is an opportunity for patrons to make an hour appointment
to work one-on-one with library staff. These appointments are for questions and
information needs that require extra time and attention with a staff member.
Obtaining a Library Card
Obtaining a Library Card
We believe library cards are life-changing resources, which is why we hope every student in the Bexley City Schools district is able to have his or her own library card. If your child is without a library card, please email for a special registration form. Once the form has been completed and submitted, we will mail his or her BPL Card directly to you at home.
Using Digital Downloads
Using Digital Downloads
There are many ways to read a book. We want your children to find the medium that works best for them. We encourage you to teach them how to access e-books and audiobooks via computers, tablets, e-readers, and smartphones for free. All they need is a library card and the Libby app. To browse available titles, visit www.bexleylibrary.org and click on the Download ebooks, audiobooks, & digital magazines link at the top left-hand side of the page.
