Phone Scam

Please note that someone has “spoofed” the library’s phone number, allowing this person to make calls from their phone, with the number appearing on caller IDs as the library’s phone number.

In the cases that have been reported to the library, the caller identifies themselves as someone from the library, and tells the person they are calling because money is owed for library materials. 

If this happens to you, please know that the library will never call to collect money from you for any reason.  The library will never ask you to provide any credit card or banking information over the phone. 

If you should receive a suspicious call that appears to be from the library, please contact the library immediately at (740) 622-0956.  The Coshocton County Sheriff’s Department has been made aware of the situation.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

Library Closing









The Coshocton Public Library System will  be closed on Thursday, July 4th in observance of the Independence Day holiday.  For your convenience, return boxes are available outside of the library 24/7, plus you  can still access the Ohio Digital Library, online catalog, and online databases even when the library is closed. The library will resume normal hours on Friday, July 5th. We apologize for any inconvenience.
