Coronavirus Information

At-Home COVID-19 Test Kits

WCDPL is distributing free, at-home COVID-19 test kits when we have supplies. To pick up a test kit, patrons can call (419) 352-5104 for pickup in Bowling Green, or call (419) 666-9900 for pickup in Walbridge. Kits are distributed through Curbside Service.

We are currently out of COVID-19 Test Kits at both Bowling Green and Walbridge Libraries.

ODH is temporarily adjusting its allocation strategy to ensure schools receive an adequate supply of At-Home Covid test kits. As a result, the state is pausing shipments to other community partners, including libraries and local health departments, until inventory and the supply chain have stabilized. This is being caused by an increased nationwide demand by the manufacturer for these tests due to the surge of the Omicron variant. ODH anticipates receiving shipments later this month.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to make kits available to you and to our community!

If you need proof of the results of this test (work, travel, etc.) do not open the test kit until instructed to do so by the online proctor. 

Please see this list of other locations where free test kits may be available.

Although originally marked for expiration in September of 2021, kits now have a longer expiration date.

Masks are Required at Both Libraries

Following guidance from the Wood County Health Commissioner, and to help protect our most precious community members, our children, the WCDPL Board of Trustees has re-instituted the mask requirement.

All patrons, staff, volunteers, and visitors shall wear a properly-fitting mask at all times while inside the BG and Walbridge libraries, and the Bookmobile.  Those that choose to not wear a mask, or those that are unable to wear a mask, are able to access the library through digital or curbside services.

Vaccination Assistance

As the Ohio Vaccination Program continues, Information Services staff can help patrons locate one of the vaccination sites in our service area. Though we are not a vaccination site, we are also happy to assist those who have technology concerns or issues with reserving an appointment.  For help, please contact Information Services at (419) 352-5050.
