Welcome to the Ohoopee Regional Library System. The Vidalia-Toombs County Library serves as headquarters for the Library System with branches in Jeff Davis, Montgomery, Tattnall and Toombs Counties. Make one or more of these locations your library by visiting them today.
The Ohoopee Libraries offer adult and juvenile materials to meet your information and recreational reading needs. Circulating collections of fiction and non-fiction books are available to you to enjoy. You may also choose from our collection of audiobooks, VHS tapes and DVDs.
You will find reference collections to provide timely and precise information on a wide variety of topics. Adult and children's magazines are great for relaxing and keeping up with current events. The library also subscribes to local, state and national newspapers.
The library welcomes guest speakers on topics of community interest, conducts literary programs and hosts a book discussion club. Ask about upcoming events.
Reading is a great way for children to learn about the world around them and explore their own personalities through stories. The Library conducts story times, arts and crafts and the annual Vacation Reading Program for your child's enjoyment. Be sure to introduce your child to the world of knowledge and fun waiting for them at the library.
PINES is an initiative to institute a statewide library card for the State of Georgia. Over 275 libraries from across the state share access to their library holdings through an automated library catalog. Any Georgian who is at least 18 years of age may receive a PINES card by providing proof of residence and a correct street address. Residents under the age of 18 need a parent or legal guardian present to apply for a library card. The PINES database lists all items owned by participating libraries, and all PINES library patrons may borrow material from any PINES library. The library catalog is accessible through the library's website or at www.gapines.org.
GALILEO is an internet based collection of databases that provide access to popular and scholarly periodicals on almost every topic. This resource also incorporates Georgia specific information from unique and respected websites. Ask a member of the library staff for the password to access the abundance of information available through GALILEO from home.
Computers are available for searching the library catalog, exploring the internet, and word processing. Patrons need to bring their library card in order to use the computers. Patrons under the age of 17 must have a parent or legal guardian present to use the internet. The Ohoopee Regional Library System's Internet Policy is available online.
Wireless internet access may be available at some locations. Contact the library of your choice for availability and more information.
A current, in good standing, library card issued by a member library of the Ohoopee Regional Library System, or by any member library of the Georgia Library PINES, must be presented in order to check out any circulating materials or use the internet.
