Get a Library Card

In compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, you must be 13 or older to complete this registration.

Library cards are free for Ohio residents. All you need is identification with a photograph that includes your name and current address. Children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who must show identification. Alternately, kids ages 5-17 can get a Kids Card without their parents being present. With a Kids Card, you can check out up to three books, but can’t check out movies or music or use the public computers.

You will need your library card to borrow materials, renew items, or pay fees. If you lose your card, report it immediately. Remember, you are financially responsible for any materials checked out on your card prior to it being reported lost or stolen. You can replace a lost or damaged card for $1.

By applying for a library card, you agree to:

  • Take responsibility for all materials borrowed on this library account.
  • Follow the rules of the library.
  • Pay any fees for damages charged to you.
  • Give prompt notice of any change of residence or email address.
