The Perry Public Library is currently closed due to the COVID-19 crisis. While the building is closed the library is still providing several resources online which can be used at home, or anywhere with an internet connection.
You can order books online through owwl.org or by phone. When your books arrive we will contact you to schedule a pickup outside the library.
eBooks, and eAudiobooks can be borrowed from Owwl2Go with your library card and pin number. Owwl2go is available through the Libby app on Apple, Amazon and Android devices though the App Stores. The app is free to download and use. Owwl2go is also available online at owwl.overdrive.com
You will need to know your PIN to log into the Owwl2Go system. The pin defaults to the last four digits of your phone number. If that doesn’t work please contact the library staff for a new number by email or by phone 237-2243.
If you do not have a library card you can currently use owwl2go to get one.
