COVID-19 Home Tests Now Available Via No-Contact Curbside Service
COVID-19 Home Tests are currently available solely via our no-contact curbside service at our Milan and Berlin locations. Please call the library (Milan – 419-499-4117; Berlin – 419-588-2250) to schedule a time to pick one up. When you arrive, pop your trunk, call us from the parking lot, and a staff member will come out to your car to place the testing kit in your trunk. We are not currently accepting walk-in requests. These tests are designed to be taken at home and not on library premises and require the NAVICA app, which can be downloaded onto a smartphone, tablet, or computer.
**Please note library staff is unable to assist with medical questions or use of the NAVICA app.
If you believe you are sick or have been exposed to COVID-19, please do not enter the building.
