Library Collections

Circulating Materials:  The OWWL library collection has over 1,000,000 items which include books, audio and ebooks, music CDs, DVDs and video games. About 35,000 items are owned by OPL.  Ontario is also home to a small circulating and well enjoyed cake pan collection.

Reference: Print-based reference materials are primarily of local history interest–but Ontario makes the NY State Library-funded online reference and research databases available through our website.  Most NOVELNY research databases do not require in-library presence for access. Many traditional adult reference materials are now housed in the circulating non-fiction adult collection.

More Online Resources & Databases

Other OWWL databases have specific accessibility requirements.  Access to these resources are explained on our separate pages about Ancestry.com Library Edition (LE) and Mango Languages.

Young Adult Materials:  Teen Space holds a collection of books, graphic novels, and audiobooks specially purchased in their interest and at their request.  Tweens often frequent the area too, as there is crossover in materials for those aged 10 through 12 based on personal interest and reading level.

Children’s Collection (aka Juvenile): Housed in the Kid’s Corner, our children’s collection includes resources in many formats targeted for early literacy from board books through chapter books through chapter books for tweens.
